Submit to the LGBT Diversity in Science Carnival!

disbadge_300

In honor of Pride Month, I’ll be hosting the LGBT edition of the Diversity in Science Carnival on Tuesday, June 30. (I’m pushing back the deadline due to travel the week before.) Send me anything you like about LGBT issues in science – for example, profiles of historic or modern scientists or issues particular to LGBT people working in science – and I will craft it into something delightful. Personal stories are welcome, but you certainly don’t need to identify as LGBT  to participate! If I don’t receive enough submissions the Carnival will consist largely of epic poetry praising the sparkly sequined cowboy hat I got at NYC Pride a couple years ago. You don’t want that, trust me.

The deadline is Sunday, June 28th. Submit via this handy form or just send it directly me via theoystersgarter at gmail dot com. Be sure to include URL, author, and a few sentences of summary.

    I kind of do want to see that poetry, as well as the hat… but I hope that you get good submissions anyway.

  2. Good point – maybe the correct threat is “if I don’t receive enough submissions, I WON’T post any cowboy hat poetry.”

    I take it that there wasn’t enough interest and submissions for this carnival?

  4. Alas, no. I didn’t get a single entry.

    Damn. I was thinking about an entry but it never materialized ’cause of my lack of time.
