Some right-wing pundits, including Glenn Beck, have read the writing on the wall and declared that anti-gay activists have lost the cultural war. But a handful of wealthy homophobes and transphobes still refuse to accept the inevitable, digging deep into their bottomless pockets to fund efforts to demonize and disparage LGBT Americans.
Meet hedge fund mogul Sean Fieler, a devout Roman Catholic from Princeton, N.J., with a wife and three children. He is a 1995 graduate of Williams College, a private liberal arts college in Massachusetts where he majored in political economy and may have been the only right-wing student. Fieler’s homophobia and transphobia are being very publicly expressed thanks to his substantial wealth acquired as head of Equinox Partners and the Kuroto Fund, both based in New York.
