Out Thinkers Dublin

Posted in LGBT, Maynooth on May 5, 2018 by telescoper

I’m back in sunny Cardiff and have quite a lot to do today, so I’ll just do a quick post to say that yesterday I left work in Maynooth slightly earlier than usual to take the train onto Dublin for an event called ‘Out Thinkers’ at the Science Gallery in Dublin. I got there in good time before the show, which was held in a nice little theatre inside the Science Gallery, which is about 15 minutes walk from Connolly Station.

Out Thinkers serves to showcase the talent of LGBT+ researchers, providing a platform where people can talk about their scientific work while truly being themselves. This Out Thinkers event featured a range speakers talking about their research and experiences as LGBT+ individuals in academia.

It was a very enjoyable event and it was a nice opportunity to see some familiar (and some unfamiliar) faces in a new setting.

Sadly, because the event overran a but I had to leave before the finish to get a train back to Maynooth so I didn’t get the chance to say goodbye and thanks to the organisers for the splendid show!
