The Physics & Astronomy Colloquium Series presents Ramon Barthelemy of University of Utah, discussing "Queering Physics: A History of the Queer Rights in the USA and LGBT+ Advocacy in Physics" on Dec. 2.

Microsoft Teams meeting


Abstract: Queer civil rights in the USA have been hard won from direct activism and organization of a diverse coalition of people, including trans women and men, People of Color, and members of the LGBT+ community more broadly.


This talk will explore this history and take an in-depth look at how principles from this history were applied to physics to make significant policy changes. The data presented will uncover a concerning climate for LGBT+ physicists, which can be even more challenging for trans persons and People of Color.
