We are inviting contributions from LGBTQ+ ecologists, scientists and practitioners for a series of blog posts across the British Ecological Society journals for UK Pride Month, which takes place in June.

The series, called Rainbow Research, aims to promote visibility and inclusion of researchers from the LGBTQ+ community with posts promoting them and their research. Each post will be connected to a theme represented by one of the colours shown in the Progress Pride (a.k.a. Intersectional) Flag. The themes are: 

Red – Life 
Orange – Healing 
Yellow – Sunlight 
Green – Nature 
Blue – Harmony 
Purple – Spirit 
White/Pink/Blue – Transgender Pride 
Black/Brown – LGBTQ2S+ Indigenous Peoples and People of Colour 

Posts can link to any of these themes, whether the theme connects to your research or your identity/ies. We’d be delighted if you would like to write a post for this series, so please get in touch for more information!
