Current research studies show that the percentage of transgender people in the U.S. is small, but it’s been growing over time.

Thanks for publishing my photos DailyDot (@DailyDot). It’s of a rally for transgender equality, in 2013 in Washington, DC, in a time and a place that much less of the world knew how to love better. Even much less of the LGBTQ community world.

DailyDot has been continuing to report on the transgender population and in this piece a remarkable statistic: 2.7% of the population of Washington, DC is transgender, that’s 600% greater than the percentages in California and New York. How did I miss this statistic. I did miss it, and it explains a lot – like why Washington, DC is the most inclusive city in the world, why the leaders here are the most transformational of our time, why our future 51st-state has the first transgender pride crosswalk in the United States.

Why I love this century 🙂 .

Daily Dot used this photo as well:

Which shows that these communities’ existence continues to be threatened. I am glad that the proportion of people in Washington, DC is large enough to compensate for the need for more of the world to learn to love better.

This generation has the power to change everything, especially when we know that love wins, 100% of the time.
