Trump seems vague on LGBT, even undocumented, in the military; the first lesbian Miss America contest

Two big stories this morning, and given time constraints (on me) I’ll let the original reporters speak for themselves.

A lesbian activist asked Donald Trump (at the NBC national security debate with Hillary Clinton, hosted by a permissive Marr Lauer) how he would handle LGBT, especially trans now (integration just starting) and also undocumented people in the military (which I was surprised could happen), Christ Johnson story here. Trump was non-committal but not necessarily hostile.  He seems to be aware that he LGBTQ vote can matter.

And Monica Hesse has a story in the Washington Post about lesbian Miss America candidate Erin O’Flaherty.
