Carson, a Denver zookeeper, has attracted a bit of attention in LGBT media circles since people discovered he was gay.

The 22-year-old told Into he’s been confused by the attention.

He revealed that it had taken him a few years to feel comfortable coming out to his family, but received a warm response when he chose to do so in 2015.

Since moving to Denver, he said he's made more gay friends and feels at home in the LGBT community.

He added that he was proud of his dad for running a “campaign that focused on inclusion” that was “for people of all colors, all faiths, and all orientations.”

So, it was something of a ~moment~ as Carson stood by and watched his dad get sworn in by Vice President Pence, a man who once signed a so-called religious freedom law in Indiana that critics said allowed LGBT discrimination and who has appeared to advocate in the past for conversion therapy.

One photo in particular got a lot of attention after Carson posted it to his account, writing #nocaptionneeded.

To be fair, it’s not 100% clear in the image by Getty’s Alex Wong whether Carson is looking at Pence or his mom.
