Peter Thiel says he’s not fussed about a homophobe Pence as Trump’s right hand. “You know, maybe I should be worried but I’m not that worried about it. I don’t know. People know too many gay people.There are just all these ways I think stuff has just shifted. For speaking at the Republican convention, I got attacked way more by liberal gay people than by conservative Christian people,” he told New York Times.

As for Trump’s anti-LGBT Supreme court plans Thiel recalled: ”I don’t think these things will particularly change. It’s like, even if you appointed a whole series of conservative Supreme Court justices, I’m not sure that [abortion case] Roe v. Wade would get overturned, ever. I don’t know if people even care about the Supreme Court. You know, you’d have thought the failure to have a vote on Merrick [Garland] would be a massive issue. And somehow it mattered to Democrats, but it didn’t matter to the public at large.” He added: “I think Trump is very good on gay rights… I don’t think he will reverse anything. I would obviously be concerned if I thought otherwise.”
