In Washington, DC, you can walk down the street to make today matter. It’s why we came here.

Why I came here, to the National Center for Transgender Equality (@TransEquality) gala is to see transformational leadership of the kind I don’t see in many other parts of society. I also came to thank all of the people who work to protect me every day and to learn what I can do to make this day matter, too. Allies need allies.

Speaking of transformational leadership, it was a delight to see Gavin Grimm (@GavinGrimmVA) honored with the Andrew Cray award for his leadership. I still don’t quite understand why educators in Virginia are spending time working to humiliate him and other students as opposed to educating them. The combined medical and nursing professions don’t understand this either, and we shouldn’t, we’re entrusted to bring science-based healing to the world 🙂 .

Because they never worked for their freedom, their travel experiences have no personal reference— no connection to the rest of their lives. Talk to them, and they’ll tell you they’re searching for something “meaningful.” What they’re really looking for, however, is the reason why they started traveling in the first place.

Most people forget that innovation (and investing in innovation) is a business of exceptions.
