Openly gay first became a minister in the US




The Upper House of the US Congress approved Pete Buttigieg's candidacy for the post of Secretary of Transportation, where he was previously nominated by US President Joe Biden.

Reported by CNN.

Openly gay, he became the first-ever LGBT person to be confirmed by the Senate as a member of the US administration. Overall, he became the fourth confirmed member of Joe Biden's new cabinet, 23 in total.

Pete Buttigieg will run an extensive federal agency that oversees the nation's airlines, highways, and transportation systems.

Recall that in the past, Buttigieg served as the mayor of South Bend in Indiana, the US presidential candidate from the Democratic Party. You can learn more about this policy in the material on our website.

In addition, on the same day, the Senate will vote on another nominee in the new cabinet — it is expected that Alejandro Mayorkas will be approved as Minister of Internal Security. After that, he should start rolling back the immigration policy of ex-President Donald Trump.
