what about the rest of the Lggbdtttiqqaapp community?

In the age of Trump, "conservative" = "the poorly educated". While there are some wrinkles in the Yale admissions process that we might possibly agree do not favor the most qualified candidates, their freshman class is still pretty sharp. So, not actually surprising.

there you go again with the trump-hating

people with advanced degrees went for hillary roughly 60-40 (22% of her voters had advanced degrees versus 14% of President Trump's). Not 100-0.
College grads, hillary had only a very slight edge (32% of her voters versus 30% of the president's). In your world, everyone with a college degree voted for hillary.
High School or less, the president had a small edge(17% of hillary's voters versus 20% of the president's)
Income of $100,000 or more, so you can afford to send your kid to Yale, the President had a slight edge (33% of hillary's voters  versus 35% of the president's)
Income of $50,000 or less, Hillary had a larger lead (39% of hillary's voters  versus 32% of the president's)

Yale Alumni Magazine: Why they call Yale the "Gay Ivy"
Yale has been widely known as the Gay Ivy since at least 1987, when Julie V. Iovine ’77 declared in the Wall Street Journal, "Suddenly Yale is a gay school."

the original wsj article doesn't come up in a google search, but I remember Pat Robertson talking about it on The 700 Club. It said that a quarter of yalies were gay, and Pat Robertson stressed that he only went to the law school
