I’m a red lipstick wearing, pin-up girl loving alternative feminist, scientist and writer. I’m out and proud about my sexuality. I am engaged to my wonderful girlfriend of fours years. I love pin-up girls of the 1940’s & 1950’s, particularly the alluring mixture of beauty, subtle sexuality, femininity and confidence. I also admire burlesque (including retro style burlesque) and the Rockabilly culture. I like also the fashion and style of the 40’s & 50’s along with alternative fashion. I’m also a feminist who stands for many ideals including – equal rights, human & civil rights, animal rights, socialism, environmentalism & conservation, social justice, acceptance of all people, the end of war and violence and encouragement of scientific, health & medical research. Professionally I am a scientist and former research student (in medical/health research) and I aspire to become a fully fledged science, health and medical writer. My dream is to write about science for a female audience and specifically a lesbian/bisexual/queer/transgendered audience. In this blog I wish to explore being a lesbian scientist along with my other diverse interests.
I work long hours and I want to spend time with my girl – my fiance, but my desire to write is strong. So I write my blog, read scientific papers and brainstorm novel ideas while lying in bed next to my girl. Week nights and saturday and sunday mornings spent writing. I fit it in when I can, because my girl and our relationship are number one. No matter what!

I would like to establish myself as Lesbian Science & Medical writer. I would like to carve out a niche for myself. I would relish communicating about science, medicine, health and research to a lesbian audience. I would love to have the opportunity to enlighten and inspire young lesbian/bisexual/queer or transgendered women to be interested in science.

While surfing the net for information on science writing and medical writing agencies & reading science blogs such those from Scientific American, I see successful female science and medical writers and I think “I want to be like them!!” I want to write for a respected science magazine. I would like to make my own mark on the world of science communication. I would love to inspire other young female science writers. A dream of mine is to be either a freelance science, medical and health writer contributing to various science and health magazines and websites or to be writer working with a research organization. I am a former medical research student and I am very passionate about communicating about the essential nature of research and the key
discoveries and disease breakthroughs research has provided the modern world. With training, avid writing and perseverance I can hopefully one day achieve my dream

I’m wanting to break into science and medical writing but it sometimes seems so daunting. I have undergrad and postgrad degrees in science and health science (microbiology) but it seems I need to have more training! I’ve written and had published a scientific journal article and have written two theses, but still I need more experience! I’m looking to gain experience via blogging and online writing. Hopefully I can achieve my goals. I think a lot of hard work, networking and perseverance is needed!
