LGBTQ+ Science Showoff – Wednesday 7 March – Star of Kings



February is LGBTQ+ History Month, an excellent opportunity for celebrating lots of LGBTQ+ people, past and present.

But we don’t want to stop celebrating once its finished. So on the 7th of March, we’ve planned an amazing stand-up comedy event featuring LGBTQ+ scientists making jokes about the incredible science they do.

Your line-up, curated by Cerys Bradley (pictured) includes:

Queer palaeontologist from UCL, Selina Groh, who still maintains that crocodiles are way cooler than dinosaurs and works on proving that via their PhD

Stewart Who? on how an educational hiccup in primary school led to a resistance to STEM subjects and a diversion into Drama and working in LGBTQ media before sci comm

Dr Linda Cremonesi – currently working as an ultra-high-energy-neutrino-hunter at UCL, Linda will be talking about  flavour queer neutrinos

Neuroscientist Oz Ismail bringing you the anxious confessions of a sexually charged nerd and taking you on a journey through his awkward existence

Lover of all things infectious, weird sex toys and cooking, Paolo Arru from SMASHfestUK dabbles in scicomm and will try to avoid mixing the previous interests together for this show.

All money raised through ticket sales will be donated to the charity London Friend, a health and well-being service for the city’s LGBTQ+ community.

Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30 start.
