2018 was my 6th Capital TransPride (@DCTranspride365). This time I was part of the producers group, and I had a great time.
Here’s what I said in 2013 about Capital TransPride:
If current societal trends to become more inclusive and love people better continue, next year there will be more of us from our health system and other health systems in the room. Eventually, the room will be filled with doctors and nurses and other professional and community allies. And then there won’t be enough room in this room for all the allies. Just watch.Celebrating Transgender Pride, our nation’s capital, and our community health, May 18 2013 – Ted Eytan, MD
I turned out to be correct 🙂 .

- This is Washington, DC, with the highest percentage of LGBTQ humans in the United States, with the highest percentage of transgender people in the United States, the most protective of LGBTQ people, the most inclusive city in the world.
- Invisibility is a last century idea – one of the many reasons this century is a better one to live in.

I am so happy that I’ve captured so much history over these past 6 years, they show the undeniability of a world that’s learning to ❤️ better.
