A queer history – How the riotous past has an impact on LGBTQ+ lives today

  Day 2 – Tuesday 2 July 2019
Why does this matter? 50 years of history from a personal point of view
Day 3 – Wednesday 3 July 2019

Day 5 – Friday 5 July 2019
LGBTSTEM Day and the role professional bodies like IPEM can play in supporting LGBTQ+ engineers and physicists 


The Pride in STEM organisers put together a fantastic tool kit for people to get involved in the day in 2019 - from hosting film screenings to participating in a massive Wikipedia-edit-a-thon.  

Remember IPEM members can join the LGBT+ Community of Interest -
