The Greatest Generation Walk and #TransVisibility, San Diego, CA USA
While here for a continuing medical education course (more on that later), I happened upon this community honorarium / art installation at the Port of San Diego (@portofsandiego). When I learned that my community colleague Connie Rice has served on the USS Midway, I realized that the people depicted in the sculptures exist across the spectrum of gender identity and sexual orientation, by definition. They are all human. So to my eyes, these works of art are really statements of visibility, including transgender person visibility.
The Greatest Generation Collection, as well as the other military memorials in the park, honor and celebrate the people, events and military heritage spanning the time from World War II to today. Located in the shadow of the decommissioned aircraft carrier USS Midway, the artworks and provide a magnificent setting in which to learn, remember and become inspired.Greatest Generation
