Thanks for publishing my photograph @DCist, celebrating the 1 year anniversary of the National Museum of African American History and Culture (@NMAAHC).
It’s also this week’s photo friday, as a reminder that the future doesn’t create itself.
Speaking of creating the future, I got to visit the museum and took the photograph below with colleague Bianca Rey (@BiancaRey), where we showed the concept of #TransVisibility in the space. Following our visit, I had a wonderful exchange with the museum on twitter, where they showed all the places where LGB and transgender people are honored (Finding LGBTQ Material at the NMAAHC – a helpful twitter dialogue. Power of social media.
It’s great to be here, in Washington, DC, in this century to continue the tradition 🙂 .
Thanks again for publishing one of my photos, @UrbanTurf_DC. It’s of the recent H Street NE Festival, in Washington, DC. The festival and the DC experience over last 8 years is reflected in the data – a 14% jump in the population is very noticeable. So are the other demographic changes.
Thanks for publishing my photograph, LSE’s USAPP – American Politics and Policy (@LSEUSAblog), in this article about the military ban on transgender humans in the United States.
It’s nice to see that esteemed scholars like Thomas Crosbie are weighing in:
Thomas Crosbie – Royal Danish Defence College –
Thomas Crosbie is an Assistant Professor at the Royal Danish Defence College. His research focuses on state policy, particularly the agency of military organizations in shaping their social and political environments.
Noting (again) that the medical profession has already weighed in, clearly and without ambiguity, because we focus on science and health:

Thanks for mentioning me in this post on the latest data from the American Community Survey, Urban Turf (@UrbanTurf_dc).
The photograph used isn’t actually one I took (I don’t have a helicopter and drones are illegal in Washington, DC) – it is public domain, hosted at the Library of Congress – click through above to get to the record there and see a full size view.
Of interest, here’s what the same circle looked like in 1992, when Washington, DC was a much less walkable, bikeable place
Of note from the data 37% of households are #CarFreeDC, and this year’s data shows a 1% rise in the percentage of people who say they walk to work, which is now at 12.9%
Thanks again, DC Policy Center (@DCPolicyCenter) for using one of my photographs to illustrate another excellent analysis.
I didn’t realize how the legacy of Washington, DC’s past is now shaping its presence with regard to public safety. The photograph was taken shortly after a 23-year old graduate student from American University was killed by a stray bullet in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, DC, which, along with several other shootings in the area, resulted in a significant police presence in the neighborhood.
Thanks for using my photo, Mapping Megan (@MappingMegan), and for highlighting the fact that the world is learning to love better. Agreed with one of the commenters that Australia’s absence from this list seems a little historic.
The photograph itself, taken in 2015 in Washington, DC (of course), continues to be the most viewed photograph in my collection, at over 72,000.
It is also nice to see that the photograph once again is being used to illustrate love winning, rather than love denied. Enjoy.
Ever since same-sex marriage was legalized in the Netherlands in 2001 (props to the Netherlands for always being at the front of progressive change), the legalization of same-sex marriage has snowballed throughout the world.27 countries (25 with another two pending) now legally recognize the right for same sex couples to marry, so if you’re part of the LGBTQI community, and want to travel, live overseas, or plan a destination wedding, these countries will recognize your right.Source: Dear LGBTQI Travelers: These Countries Will Recognize Your Same Sex Marriage #LoveAlwaysWins – Mapping Megan
