‘Mayor Pete’

A Reel Progress Screening and Discussion

12:30 - 1:15 PM EST

Please join the Center for American Progress for a discussion of the new documentary film Mayor Pete.

Mayor Pete brings viewers inside U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg’s campaign to be the youngest U.S. president, providing an unprecedented intimacy with the candidate, his husband Chasten, and their ambitious team. This film reveals what really goes on inside a campaign for the highest office in the land and ways it changes the lives of those at its center.

After viewing the documentary, we invite you to watch our panel discussion after 12:00pm on November 15. Our panel will focus on the historic nature of Secretary Buttigieg’s candidacy, the pressures LGBTQI+ people feel while running for office, and his candidacy’s potential as a change agent for future candidates.

You can view Mayor Pete on Prime Video on or on the Mayor Pete details page. If you do not have an Amazon Prime account, you can register at for a 30-day free trial. If you would like to end your trial after viewing the film so you will not be charged, you can cancel your subscription before the 30 days are up.

Distinguished panelists:
Jesse Moss, Director, Mayor Pete
Ruben J. Gonzales, Executive Director, LGBTQ Victory Institute

Sharita Gruberg, Vice President, LGBTQI+ Research and Communications Project, Center for American Progress
