Being Gay in a Trump world!

By now I am getting resigned to the Trump reality, even though I am not happy about it at all.  This presidency affects not only gay persons, but also the country and the world.  The people that Trump is counting on for information and advice are terrible!  By why am I concerned about my own life and the lives of my gay brothers and lesbian sisters?  The VP Pence is rabidly anti-gay.  He tried to force his views earlier this year by allowing public businesses to discriminate against gays.  He was forced to rescind his order when private companies started to pull out of Indiana; the backlash was too great.  This doesn’t mean, however, that he has changed his views.  Now he will have the ability to introduce regulations and laws that will be discriminatory.  Trump will place right-wing ideologues on the Supreme Court that possibly allow this discrimination.  What I need to do is to be aware when these things happen and to voice my disapproval.  While I am angry, I will focus my energy on productive ways to respond.  I will voice and vote my disapproval.  Joe Gentilini
