    Bill, Congratulations and thank you for recording this terrific video! As a newly retired IBMer and a strong ally of the LGBT community (I served as an Executive Advocate at IBM) I’m proud to hear of your transition and also the support that IBMers specifically have given you. Count me as one of them!
