15 lead­ers giv­ing voice and vis­i­bil­i­ty to the LGBTQ com­mu­ni­ty in bio­phar­ma

I’ve gone back and forth on the mes­sage and tone of this in­tro — my thoughts fluc­tu­at­ing be­tween steps on runs, dur­ing gas sta­tion stops on a road trip with fel­low gay friends, mid-flight to a biotech con­fer­ence, on breezy bi­cy­cle rides. All seem­ing­ly while in a state of move­ment.

And move­ment’s a good word to de­scribe this group. Mov­ing them­selves, their cowork­ers, their or­ga­ni­za­tions and their com­mu­ni­ties for­ward — all while do­ing some­thing sim­ple on pa­per: be­ing them­selves. They’re be­ing vis­i­ble and shar­ing their sto­ries so fel­low LGBTQ col­leagues don’t feel in­vis­i­ble or feel the need to be any­thing oth­er than them­selves in the drug de­vel­op­ment in­dus­try.
