The owner of the popular gym chain Equinox has announced he will host a fundraiser for Donald Trump’s reelection.

Stephen Ross, the real estate developer who holds the majority stake in Equinox Fitness Clubs, will host a fundraiser for Trump in Southhampton. Tickets to the event sell for $250,000 per person.

Ross himself is no stranger to Trump, or to money. With an estimated net worth of more than $7 billion, Ross also owns or has previously owned stakes in Hudson Yards, the Maimi Dolphins, PURE Yoga, Blink Fitness, SoulCycle and the Time Warner Center. He’s also enjoyed a long friendship with Trump for decades.

We suspect the response for Equinox’s substantial gay clientele will look something like this:
