I'm an LGBT black man and have been thinking of moving to the US with my partner, but since Trump has been elected I've been really scared about what will happen to us if we go through with the move. What's the atmosphere like towards minority groups in America right now? Are there going to be changes in American laws that will make things more difficult for us? Please help with info!
On the upside, there is one small silver lining which is that there are a handful of members of minority groups that, for the first time, now have representation in newly elected senators / governers / members of congress.

You know, there will be discrimination everywhere, but the US is a very good country to live in in terms of being LGBTQ or ethnic. My country is becoming more and more liberal and accepting, so I think that you really shouldn't have much of an issue.
Specifically under Donald Trump, I don't think it'll impact you. I'd say almost everyone thinks that he's a pig and shouldn't be in office, and if you meet someone that likes Trump, they are basically now considered a horrible person. So really, it won't impact you unless to hang out with people that like him.
Donald Trump really won't have much of an impact AT ALL on making a more conservative America. Our president really doesn't have much power when you think about it.
Overall, you shouldn't have a problem.
Hope all is well.
