I wish I knew, Peter. I hear the same things, and I experience less homophobia among young people. I hope that the resurgence of anti-lgbtq violence and the push for exclusionary legislation is a symptom of the Trump illness and that it will collapse with the collapse of his movement, if and when that happens.

In the meantime, we have Jeff Sessions addressing gatherings official hate groups that advocate the comeback of sodomy laws, telling them their religious beliefs aren’t hate.

It’s discouraging.
