Pride Month May Be Coming To An End

Pride Month may be coming to an end today but the social concerns that brought us Pride Month continue year 'round. So, whatever our specific orientations and gender identities, let's remember that our sciences often fall short as safe spaces for everyone to discuss our research. The US is not an especially inclusivity-friendly nation right now - think of what the occupant in the White House and his allies espouse and put into policy (including undoing progress that took years of difficult work to accomplish). I am well aware that transgender scientists still get discriminated against and are publicly bullied by peers (very obviously so on social media) who really should know better.

In the meantime, enjoy this wonderful post. I love the logo (see below - nicked from the same post). And I love the notion of a more inclusive science and society.
