Producer Richie Jackson, who married his husband Jordan Roth in front of the now-POTUS 8 years ago, says that those people who support him as a politician do not understand the struggle of the gay community. Jackson said that Trump, his wife, daughter and son-in-law were at his wedding because the father of his now-husband was Trump’s financial adviser. Looking back, Jackson said he was glad Trump saw their wedding. But when Trump started running for the presidency, Jackson warned his family that it could mean nothing good, but not everybody listened to him, and it hurt him deeply. “The most generous I can be about this is that they don’t understand what it takes to be gay and don’t appreciate how important being gay is to us. It is every fiber of our beings. Sometimes I think people think being gay is like putting on a fancy shirt before they go out. They just don’t appreciate the daily exhausting vigilance it takes to be gay,” the producer said.
