The California Academy of Sciences Exhibit Celebrates Queerness In Science

From Science Friday

Last year, the California Academy of Sciences debuted “New Science: The Academy Exhibit,” which celebrates 23 incredible LGBTQIA+ scientists. The folks in this exhibit are challenging the exclusionary practices that are all too common in scientific spaces, with the aim of creating a more inclusive and welcoming environment. It is a celebration of queerness in science.

The curator of this exhibit, Lauren Esposito, who is also a  curator of arachnology at the California Academy of Sciences and founder of 500 Queer Scientists, based in San Francisco. 

The exhibit is free and open to the public at the California Academy of Sciences, and it is also available online.
