Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month is celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan. The Stonewall riots were a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. As part of Pride Month, Berkeley Lab profiled scientists in the Biosciences and Computing Sciences Areas. One of the three to share their stories is Andrew Hagen, a postdoc in Cheryl Kerfeld’s group in the Molecular Biophysics & Integrated Bioimaging Division who was also a former graduate student with Jay Keasling at the Joint BioEnergy Institute. Read his about his experiences, along with those of Deb Agarwal and Elijah Goodfriend, on the Berkeley Lab Diversity & Inclusion website.
