LGBTQ History Month: Stephen O. Murray

Icons of Science in the LGBTQ Community

LGBTQ History Month is a month-long annual observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, and the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements.  LGBT History Month provides role models, builds community, and makes the civil rights statement about our extraordinary national and international contributions.
