In the latest episode of the Science in Australia Gender Equity (SAGE) podcast, Think Difference, we talk to Queers in Science about STEM diversity.

Support and acceptance for queer and gender diverse Australians has come a long way, but still has a long way to go. There have been some fantastic victories that have changed a lot of lives but sadly, people still have to deal with transphobic and homophobic attitudes and abuse.

So how does this play out in the world of science, tech, engineering and maths, and who’s there to advocate for LGBTQIA+ people working in these fields? QueersinScience is Melbourne-based initiative aiming to build community and improve support for LGBTQIA+ working in STEM in Australia.

The SAGE initiative is co-run by ATSE and the Australian Academy of Science.
