American institute of Physics has gathered an incredible list of resources that support the LGBTQ+ community of scientists, via AIP.org
AIP is proud to partner with organizations around the world on LGBTSTEM Day. LGBTQ+ people in science, technology, engineering, and math continue to struggle to openly be themselves. We believe that a day of recognition could go a long way in helping raise awareness and increase support. We want this to be a new and important component of the global push to increase diversity and inclusion in STEM.
There’s no such thing as too small a gesture to promote and support LGBTQ+ people in STEM. You can start by following and contributing to the #LGBTSTEMday hashtag on social media — share stories, images and videos of yourself or your role models — and help boost the visibility of other LGBTQ+ people in science, tech, engineering, and math.
AIP and its Member Societies are committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in the physical sciences. In honor of Pride Month and LGBTSTEM Day, we have gathered some resources that support the LGBTQ+ community of scientists. Also highlighted are contributions from the LGBTQ+ community to science and humanity that are worthy of celebration.
