oSTEM New resource for LGBTIQQAP+ Physicists

Welcome to the first website for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning, asexual, pansexual, not-cisgender and not-straight (as well as friendly cis and straight) physicists. This resource website has come out of a need for resources for LGBTIQQAP+ physicists. It is our hope that it expands into a networking resource for young TIQQAPBLG+ physicists and students to find mentors, a place to find resources for laboratories and universities to make their physics departments more BTIQQAPLG+ friendly, as well as a hosting of information of get togethers of GLBTIQQAP+ physicists and friends.
We have recently completed our Best Practices Guide for physics departments! It includes a list of suggestions that your department can enact to make it more inclusive and welcoming towards LGBT+ students and faculty.
If you would like to join our mailing list, please join the the Google Group below. If you are an out physicist, please consider e-mailing us so that we can add you our Out Physicists List, which will help other physicists network with you. If you would like to offer your skills and talents towards this cause, please contact us.
