One of the most outstanding points of political progress in DC, has been its civil rights efforts. I was found especially intriguing to spot at the Elizabeth Taylor Medical center,14th Street NW, an LGBTQ flag. Not everyone would necessarily agree with all of the changes that DC has gone through. With more background on who Whitman-Walker were during the 80s-90s, and what they continue to do for the LGBTQ community, I was able to understand that this health center and Whitman-Walker Health were crucial to conquering the AIDS/HIV epidemic. Because of their efforts among others, same-sex couples can be seen openly holding hands.
