Queer Biologists Convergence
Time: Friday April 21st, 7:30 to 8:30 pm
Location: Room I
Description: Despite laws, policies, and stigma, queerness continues to thrive in nature, and we continue to be part of nature. We don't have to navigate cisnormative/heteronormative biology departments, workplaces or field forays alone. Share your challenges, share your successes, problem-solve, and let's celebrate queerness among our fellow biologists. If you're inspired, bring a photo of a favorite non-human creature.
Pre-registration not required. Note: this meeting is open to any queer/LGBTQIA2S+ identifying conference participant or attendee; even if you aren't staying at the conference hotel Friday night, you are welcome to attend.
Free of charge
