The Extensive Anti-LGBTQ History of Trump's Lawyer

The Extensive Anti-LGBTQ History of Trump's Lawyer
- Donald Trump’s cadre of homophobes has added another name to its roster: Jay Sekulow, the face of Trump’s personal legal team,  has been tasked with defending Trump against charges of obstruction and collusion.
Sekulow sits at the helm of a conservative Christian legal group, the American Center for Law and Justice, which claims to advocate for religious liberty and free speech. In practice, however, religious liberty and free speech amount to little more than a euphemism for lawful bigotry against LGBTQ people.
With branches across the world, the Center represents abroad the interests of the American religious right whose agenda has largely been thwarted at home. This is no more clear than in Russia, where the group supported the controversial and discriminatory 2013 “gay propaganda” law that essentially criminalizes any outward displays of gayness.
