Peter Thiel, who is gay, shows his support to Donald Trump and joins his administration, the lion share of which is anti-LGBT. “A page in the book of history has turned, and there is an opening to think about some of our problems from a new perspective. I’ll try to help the president in any way I can,” Mr. Thoiel told New York Times. However, he was appointed on Friday. He joins three of Mr Trump’s children – Donald Trump Jr, Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump.

Mr Thiel, who donated more than $1 million to the Trump campaign, made history earlier this year as the first openly gay speaker at the Republican National Convention. Mr Thiel recently admitted secretly funding a multi-million dollar lawsuit that forced online news outlet Gawker Media into bankruptcy, as “revenge” over its coverage that referenced his sexuality back in 2007.
