I normally don’t do personal posts, but today marks the first International LGBTQ+ people in STEM day. According to NATURE and the American Physical Society, only 57% of LGBT researchers are ‘out’ in the lab, with a third being advised to stay in the closet if they wish to advance their career . As a researcher, I perpetually struggle with being openly queer in academia. But recently, I’ve been making a much more conscious effort to be open. To proudly hang a rainbow flag in my office. To be part of improving the visibility and representation of LGBTQ+ scientists I didn’t have growing up. For people like my students trying to pursue a career in academia. For kids just starting to fall in love with science like I did to never have to worry about being their truest, most authentic self . This is me. This is what a scientist looks like . P.S.-For the many of you I’m not out to, surprise? 😅 — #LGBTSTEMDay #womeninstem #proud #lgbt #prideinstem #iamascientist #scicomm at University of Toronto Mississauga

“CCTV Angel”, Banksy Juxtaposing the famed Greek “Winged Victory of Samothrace” statue with a CCTV camera for a head, this piece exemplifies Banksy’s career-long commentary on his concern regarding the surveillance state — Banksy has been an inspiration of my art for over a decade, so grateful to have finally gotten to see some of his work firsthand ❤️ — #banksy #cctvangel #theartofbanksy #banksyexhibition #art #streetart at The Art of Banksy

“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.” The world lost a man who was a visionary not only in his field, but in life as well. Forever an inspiration to me. Thank you Dr. Stephen Hawking — #stephenhawking #march142018 #quotes
