Thanks, Sir Elton

As some of you will know, Sir Elton John founded a charity devoted to helping people with HIV/AIDS. They work primarily by granting money to other charities, to research projects and so on. Yesterday they announced a grant of $200,000 to one of my favorite organizations, the Transgender Law Center. The money will be used to undertake a national (USA) needs assessment of trans people living with HIV. For further details, see this news story. I’m delighted to see Elton, not only standing up for trans people, but also putting his foundation’s money forward to help them.
