Time magazine featured presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg and his husband, Chasten, on the May 13 cover with the headline, “First Family: The unlikely, untested and unprecedented campaign of Mayor Pete Buttigieg.”

The article, shared online Thursday, explores the GOP’s fear of Buttigieg as a legitimate contender among more than 20 Democratic 2020 hopefuls.

“People already have a leader who screams and yells,” Buttigieg told Time, referring to President Trump. “How do you think that’s working out for us?”

The mayor is married to Chasten, 29, a former junior high teacher who now serves as an adviser and campaign spokesman to his husband, an Afghan War veteran and Rhodes scholar.

As for his marriage, Time reveals that Buttigieg does the dishes, laundry, and garbage. Chasten takes care of the dogs, the kitchen and shopping.

Chasten later tweeted about the magazine cover, writing, “11 years ago, when I came out, I didn’t think there was a place for me in this world. 10 months ago we said ‘I do.’ 1 month ago we said ‘let’s do this.’ Today:” followed by a picture of the cover.

“Buttigieg is a gay Episcopalian veteran in a party torn between identity politics and heartland appeals,” Time noted. “He’s also a fresh face in a year when millennials are poised to become the largest eligible voting bloc. Many Democrats are hungry for generational change, and the two front runners are more than twice his age.”
