Last year at this time, there was no Section 1557 rule (see: A Historic LGBTQ Health Symposium on a Historic Day ) or Title IX guidance, with the former on its way to being the biggest change in health care that I can remember in my career. Lyndon Baines Johnson and Richard Nixon would be proud of their legacy.

The thing that hasn’t changed since last year (se: A few photos on the way to the right side of history, at the National Center for Transgender Equality 12th Anniversary Gala) is the feeling that this room, with people numbering in the hundreds, is the place where the world is changing.

Of course, now the most impactful organizations are now a part of the change, and why wouldn’t they be, Equality Equals Health, Productivity, and love always wins 🙂 .

Rest of the photos below, enjoy.
