Frank Kameny: From Astronomer to Activist for LGBTQIA+ Rights

In the sixth article of the CTAO’s “Building from Diversity” series, Eugenia Gatti (CTAO HR Specialist and member of the CTAO Gender Equality Plan Group) gives us a glimpse into the life of Frank Kameny, who was banned from working as an astronomer due to discriminatory anti-homosexuality policies in the 1950’s. Nonetheless, even though his scientific career was cut short, Kameny became a notable activist who helped pave the way to the LGBTQIA+ rights we have today.
