Abstract Title: LGBT+ in Physics: The Transgender Experience
Abstract: It has been widely reported that youth are more accepting of LGBT+ identities, and an increasing number of colleges and universities allow students to use gender-neutral pronouns. Yet, research on how inclusive STEM educational cultures are of sexual identity and gender fluidity is meager. My research is based on STEM undergraduates of transgender experience, and I will present findings on whether/how environments that are inclusive for women of color are inclusive for transgender students as well.
