Queer@Scripps

Queer@Scripps is a group for queer-identifying students, staff, postdocs, researchers, faculty, and alumni at Scripps to connect, share resources, and be in community with each other. We host monthly informal meet-ups and plan events throughout the year.

For Pride Month, we brought tie dye supplies to La Jolla Shores Park, and we were able to tie dye Pride-related apparel. This was a great way to celebrate Pride and bring the community together.

June 2021: Instagram Campaign featured on WMIS's Instagram (@wmis_sio)

Check out our Instagram Campaign for Pride Month on @wmis_sio! We will feature queer members of the Scripps community and discuss relevant issues!

6/3/2021 12:30-2pm: Growing Up in Science with Dr. Sylvia Newell

  • This month, we featured a queer speaker, Dr. Sylvia Newell. These events are set up as conversations between a guest scientist and students and postdocs. We focus on the scientist’s personal stories, highlighting struggles, goals, serendipity, success, and failure. The discussion would be centered on your personal journey into and through science, as opposed to the rigid scientific path we so often see reflected on CVs and websites.

4/19/2021 3-4pm: LGBTQ+ at UCSD: Here & Now

Learn more about the history and significance of the LGBT Resource Center at UCSD with Dr. Shaun Travers, hear from Drs. Ashley Juavinett and Yi-Zhuang You about being out in academia, and learn how to get involved with the various queer student groups on campus! This event was part of the LGBTRC's Out & Proud Series.
