Less than a month into the new presidency, it's still too soon to definitively say where Donald Trump stands on LGBT rights. While there have been two promising bits of inaction -- both of which could change on a dime -- Jeff Sessions's opening salvo against transgender children indicates that we have every reason to brace for the worst.
Here's what I know so far:

'Callous Attack': Trump DOJ Drops Protections for Transgender Students

Neil Gorsuch's Disturbing Record on LGBTG Rights (While Trump claims to believe same-sex marriage is "settled," he also thinks Roe v. Wade can be changed. And who better to also undo marriage equality than this horrendous SCOTUS pick?)Not sure how Trump's scorecard is "better" for LGBT Americans than Hillary Clinton would have been, as some gay Trump supporters insisted he would be. But rest assured activists will be on top of his every move for however long he remains in office.
