An active member in the Naperville LGBTQ community, Eva-Genevieve Scarborough is trying to wrap her head around electing Donald Trump president and Mike Pence as the vice president.

“I’m numb, shell-shocked. I’m angry,” Scarborough said. “I keep asking myself, what did we do wrong? Where did we fall short?”

She said what scares her most is Mike Pence‘s past efforts as governor of Indiana to fight against measures to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual , transgender and questioning community.

Because of that, supporters might get the idea that it’s “open season on the LGBTQ community.”
