Pride Summer Panel #2: LGBTQ+ in Industry
Welcome back to My Fave Queer Chemist, y'all! This week, Bec & Geraldo share the recording of our second Pride Summer event, a Live Panel discussion about LGBTQ+ in Industry. We featured four incredible scientists doing great work in the chemical industries AND we raised $700 for the Trans Women of Color Collective, an organization that is working to advocate for and save the lives of transgender people of color in this country. All pride summer, we’ll be hosting other great events that highlight LGBTQ+ scientists in a variety of fields. Each episode will raise funds for a different organization in the United States that is working to save the lives of transgender adults and youth, which feels especially necessary given the huge number of anti-trans legislation that have been proposed in countless states in this country this year. Next Thursday, July 1 we’ll be having our third panel “LGBTQ+ in Academia” benefiting the Trans Lifeline so stay tuned, we’ll be tweeting more information about this in the next couple of days.
