Last year I was wondering if there had been any studies done on the LGBT community in engineering. After some searching I found an thesis paper titled "Navigating the Heteronormativity of Engineering: The Experiences of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Students" By Erin A. Cech. It's a lengthy read, but very insightful on how a number of LGBT people tend to stay closeted in engineering through a majority of their college lives. I thank you Erin, you helped me realize that I can help people understand that LGBT are in every field.
Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving weekend. Finals are around the corner, wish me luck!
Here's the link to the paper: http://crgp.ucsd.edu/documents/CechandWaidzunasNavigatingHeteronormativityofEngring.pdf
And good luck to those who are also heading towards finals week!
