Dear colleagues, 

We have organized a new satellite event at this year’s VSS: a social gathering for LGBTQ+ vision scientists and their friends. 

The event is called Visibility. It will take place Tuesday, May 21, 8:30 – 10:00 pm, in the Jasmine/Palm room of the TradeWinds hotel. 

Here’s why: LGBTQ students are disproportionately likely to drop out of science early <https://nam02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nature.com%2Farticles%2Fd41586-018-05587-y&data=02%7C01%7Cmichael.grubb%40trincoll.edu%7C157b2891b1924a94292808d6c1c968f8%7Ca6cda06a52d94672ae1ff6f9c9f14e37%7C0%7C0%7C636909468138324092&sdata=rtl3uFVC6Jmo3WX434lkBYM6zaQ6mWvGU%2Bqcr0N76l4%3D&reserved=0>. Potential causes include the lack of visible role models and the absence of a strong community. This social event is one small step towards filling that gap. All are welcome. Snacks, drinks, and camaraderie will be provided. Sponsored by Trinity College.

We look forward to seeing you there! 

Alex White and Michael Grubb
