All physicians are at some level health activists – by definition they have to be – and I have spent time with leaders across many different health movements, from civil rights, environmental stewardship, metabolic health to name a few.

In each of these places a conclusion I hear very often is that the LGBTQ rights movement is arguably the most successful social movement of our time.

The people and places that are a part of this movement are among the most prolific leaders I have ever met, establishing success across health, economics, and policy.

As Jerome Pohlen stated so well in his book (see: Thanks for publishing my photo, in this lovely book: Gay & Lesbian History for Kids, by Jerome Pohlen):

First, the LGBT community has never given up on a struggle, even if it took decades to achieve. And second, in the end, they always win.

It’s what happens in the future, where we live 🙂 .

Congratulations to the evening’s honorees, Sarah McBride (@SarahEMcBride) and the Obama Adminstration, with award accepted by Valerie Jarrett (@ValerieJarrett) who are pictured in the photos below, along with other heroes, Ruby Corado (@CasaRubyDC), Bianca Rey (@BiancaRey), and the teams from @CapitalPrideDC and @DCTransPride365.

Also noting, that National Center for Transgender Equality (@TransEquality) took the time to cater non-diabetogenic food with plenty of healthy fats. They put more caring into the health of their attendees than I see at most health/medical conferences. As I’ve said previously, sometimes the patients are right, and all we have to do is listen.
