The popular actor Billy Eichner has stepped into the Presidential Race expressing his support for Pete. But is it going to work well in favor of Buttigieg? Is America ready to accept an LGBTQ member running the White House?

However, let’s just say that Billy Eichner making a post to support his friend has been an eye opener for many. Underneath the post, many votes have commented their support for Buttigieg, applauding the actor for drawing attention to his role in the LGBTQ community and the US politics on the whole.
