Hey, look! GLAD gave me an award!

I was humbled and honored to receive an award this year from Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, New England's LGBT/AIDS legal advocacy organization. The award was in recognition of the work that I did on the transgender civil rights bill which became law in Rhode Island this year.

Here's a picture of the beautiful plaque:

In case you can't read it on the photo, the text is:
