Increasing Representation for Queer Scientists

“No matter how long you’ve been out, or your career stage, identifying yourself as LGBTQ+ and telling your story publicly on this platform (or any) carries a personal and professional risk. Visibility matters.”

There is a thriving community of LGBTQ folks in STEM, but they don’t always get the representation they deserve. Point Scholar Shayle Matsuda shared about how 500 Queer Scientists is changing that. Check out our ViewPoint blog for more!

“In 1907, the brilliant Colette caused a sensation at the Moulin Rouge when she appeared with her lesbian lover Missy (the marquise de Morny) in a one-act pantomime called Rêve d’Egypte (Dream of Egypt). Dressed in a costume… Colette played a mummy waiting to be ‘unpacked’ by the ‘male’ archaeologist, played by Missy. The performance provoked an audience uproar when they kissed; as Colette’s biographer Judith Thurman asserts, ‘the stage was immediately bombarded with coins, orange peels, seat cushions, tins of candy, and cloves of garlic, while the catcalls… and shouts of ‘Down with the dykes’ drowned out an orchestra of forty musicians.” —

““Mother,” I slowly repeated in Korean. “I am not a boy. I am a girl. I am transgender.” My face reddened, and tears blurred my vision. I braced myself for her rejection and the end to a relationship that had only begun. Silence again filled the room. I searched my mother’s eyes for any signs of shock, disgust or sadness. But a serene expression lined her face as she sat with ease on the couch. I started to worry that my words had been lost in translation. Then my mother began to speak. “Mommy knew,” she said calmly through my friend, who looked just as dumbfounded as I was by her response. “I was waiting for you to tell me.” “What? How?” “Birth dream,” my mother replied. In Korea some pregnant women still believe that dreams offer a hint about the gender of their unborn child. “I had dreams for each of your siblings, but I had no dream for you. Your gender was always a mystery to me.” I wanted to reply but didn’t know where to begin. My mother instead continued to speak for both of us. “Hyun-gi,” she said, stroking my head. “You are beautiful and precious. I thought I gave birth to a son, but it is OK. I have a daughter instead.””
