November 18, 2021 @ 08:00 17:00

November 18 is the International day of LGTBIQA+ people in STEM. The date is symbolic of the anniversary of American Astronomer and gay activist Frank Kameny’s US Supreme Court fight against workplace discrimination, a fight that continues today worldwide.  This day has been selected to highlight the work and barriers of LGBTIQA+ people in science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM).

Today, we subscribe all that this day represents: to make visible the affective-sexual and gender diversity in these fields and to manifest our categorical rejection to the discrimination suffered by people from this group in general and in particular in STEM areas.

Here you can find 10 PRISMA measures for the equality of LGTBIQA+ people in Research Centers, of the PRISMA association for affective-sexual and gender diversity in Science, Technology and Innovation.

We also invite you to enjoy the talk “El sexo de los ángeles: huyendo del concepto binario del sexo biológico” at the University of Valencia, given by Daniel Ruiz Gabarre, member of the Equality working group of the SO CBM (part of the Comisión Intercentros CSIC+UAM) and to consult the UN campaign Free & Equal – United Nations on Intersex Awareness.
