Join vibrant conversations with inspiring LGBTQIA+ scientists who are out 'in the lab' and to their peers.

Over a glass of wine and nibbles, these events will provoke positive debate and help promote science as an inclusive, forward-thinking, and viable career path for bright young queer minds!

The '500 Queer Scientists' initiative was launched in June 2018 and highlights the real need for increased visibility of LGBTQIA+ scientists.

The issues are complex, but visibility and role models are part of the solution. Following the success of our sold-out events in 2019, 2020, and 2021, we are proud to return in 2023 with not one, but two evenings featuring different panels of LGBTQIA+ scientists as speakers.

Associate Professor Alice Motion will be our fabulous host again and the events will coincide with a special exhibit on plant sexual diversity at The Calyx in the heart of the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.

Each ticket includes one drink on arrival and light refreshments after the panel discussion.

Unique themes and lineups each night. Check back for details closer to the event date.
