Chasten Buttigieg posted a photo of his husband, out Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, running in DC’s hot and humid summer weather, but his gay fans are the ones getting sweaty.
The adorkable administration official and former presidential candidate is fresh off a 60-mile bike ride and a “transition run” in the thirst trap.
#BeardedButtigieg and #BeardEdgeEdge dominated gay social media for days during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic quarantine after Buttigieg grew a beard.
While he has his detractors, the bulk of responses to a tweeted screen capture of Chasten’s Instagram story quickly drew responses.
“If you don’t think he’s hot, it’s homophobic,” one user responded.
“Chasten is so lucky,” another crooned.
Several of the responses were decidedly not safe for work.
That's a good looking man.😍🔥
I've been curious to know what Pete looked like, underneath those blue suits for a while now, and this "thirst trap" does not disappoint. Thanks Chasten.😉

If you don't think he's hot it's homophobic
