WATCH: Mayor Pete's husband mocks pledge of allegiance, grooms kids at LGBT camp

"I pledge my heart, to the rainbow, of the Not So Typical gay camp, one camp, full of pride, indivisible, with affirmation and equal rights for all," Buttigieg says in a call and response.

Chasten Buttigieg, husband of Biden's Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, was caught on tape mocking the pledge of allegiance with a group of LGBTQ+ kids at a "gay camp." Chasten Buttigieg is a middle school teacher.

"I pledge my heart, to the rainbow, of the Not So Typical gay camp, one camp, full of pride, indivisible, with affirmation and equal rights for all," Buttigieg says in a call and response before waving a large rainbow flag.

This was recorded in 2019 at the Iowa Safe Schools Annual Governor's Conference on LGBTQ Youth. The room cheered when it was announced that they were going to do the "Pledge to the Rainbow Flag."

At the camp, Buttigieg gave a short interview about being on the campaign trail with husband Buttigieg, who was running to be the Democrat nominee for president that year. He failed in his bid, but was appointed Transportation Secretary by President Biden, who won the nom and the presidency.

"Being out on the trail gives me the opportunity to do things like this," Chasten Buttigieg said in the interview after making a sexual joke. "Like, puts the wind in my sails."

Pete Buttigieg is often hailed as the first openly gay Cabinet member, but Ric Grenell, who served as Acting Director of National Intelligence under President Donald Trump, actually holds that honor.

The Log Cabin Republicans, a gay GOP political group, said "Whatever this is, we don't want it. Hands off, Chasten."

Iowa Safe Schools, which hosts the Pride Camp, thanked Buttigieg for attending, saying that "Our campers have seen first-hand that an LBGTQ individual can be a leading candidate for president thanks to Chasten and @PeteButtigieg!"

He also spoke at the Virtual Graduation in 2020, delivering a commencement address to the graduating class of 2020. In that speech, he thanked Iowa Safe Schools, and said that his visit to Pride Camp was his favorite part of being on the campaign trail with his husband Pete, and announced his pronouns.

The Annual Governor's Conference on LGBTQ Youth is touted as the "largest LGBTQ youth conference in the nation." This year, it will be taking place virtually. It is presented by Iowa Safe Schools, and this year will feature Amy Schneider, a biological male who has the distinction of being the "most successful woman to ever compete on Jeopardy," the quiz game show. Schneider will be the "celebrity keynote" speaker on April 15.

Iowa Safe Schools took issue with Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds for signing into law a bill that protects girls' sports from intrusion by biological male athletes who identify as women and wish to play on women's sports teams. In response to Reynolds signing the bill, they shared a gif of a drag queen with the caption "not this."

They claim that the bill protecting girls and their right to compete on a fair playing field is "Iowa attaching Trans Kids."

Much of the Twitter feed for Iowa Safe Schools is about the T, and not the LGB, of the acronym. They also press a "School Wide Pride Guide" for students in grades K-12, that they say "helps teachers build a learning environment that empowers students—affirming them of their unique identities, who they love, and who loves them."

The curriculum kit brings a variety of books to schools, including those aimed at kindergarteners, to let them know that their minds may be disassociated from their bodies, such as Jacob's New Dress. There are shirts for sale as well on the Iowa Safe Schools site, with the motto "you can pee next to me," "2 4 6 8 how do you know your kid is straight?" and "guys, gals & non-binary pals."

The table of contents for The Schoolwide Pride Guide: High School Edition, has chapters on "The Genderbread Person," "Understanding Privilege," and the history of Pride. It instructs teachers on how they can go about "Facilitating Complex Conversations and Civil Discourse," how to form queer books clubs and what books to include, as well as how teachers can start GSAs, or "gay straight alliance" clubs at their school."

There are resources on preferred pronouns and "navigating the law," as well. Under "Pronoun Prep," a variety of pronouns go beyond the gender binary, such as ze/zir/zirself, and xe/xem/xir/xirself. The page shows two people in hijabs sharing their non-binary pronouns.
