We’re really keen to increase the visibility of the LGBTQ+ STEM community, so we regularly have people hosting the account, telling us about themselves, and their experiences of being LGBTQ+ in STEM…or sometimes just about working in STEM, or about being LGBTQ+…we’re pretty open. If you’re an active ally, we’d love to hear from you too. If you’re interested in hosting the account, or you’d like to find out more, please get in touch
