The Washington Blade reports that former congresswoman Michele Bachmann tops the list of members of the newly announced anti-LGBT evangelical advisory board unveiled Tuesday by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The 26 members of the board are a who’s who of individuals who’ve sought to undermine LGBT rights. Members were announced on the same day Trump was set to meet with evangelical leaders at Trump Tower in New York City. Bachmman is the first name on the list of members, which is in alphabetical order.

Bachmann, who formerly represented Minnesota’s 6th congressional district in the U.S. House, is a Tea Party favorite and known for holding anti-LGBT positions. She ran for the Republican nomination for president in 2012, but dropped out after an abysmal showing in her home state of Iowa.
