Gay attorney says Trump’s SCOTUS pick called his marriage ‘a wonderful thing’

People have been searching for clues to what President Donald Trump‘s pick for the U.S. Supreme Court would mean for the LGBT community. From recently won marriage rights, to a pending case on transgender rights, there is a lot to lose.

While nominee Neil Gorsuch’s published record is short on rulings related to LGBT rights, some have suggested that his record on other hot button social issues and past statements about gay marriage rights indicate he won’t be an ally.

But one gay former employee told the Huffington Post that he never saw Gorsuch express anti-gay views.

“I have never felt the least whiff from him of homophobia or intolerance toward gay people,” said Joshua Goodbaum, who worked as a law clerk for Gorsuch in 2009.

Rather, he said, Goruch showed support for his former law clerk’s same-sex marriage. Now an attorney, Goodbaum said that his former boss offered warm words when they chatted the week of his 2014 wedding.
