Frequently Asked Questions

Couldn’t you change the date? It’s not really ideal on July 5th.

We have received several comments about the date not being ideal. Some from university and schools that they’d prefer it to be in term time. Some from US organisations who would prefer it to be further away from July 4th, We look at a few alternative dates for 2019 but they all clashed with something else.

Our organisation can’t celebrate LGBTSTEM Day on July 5th. What should we do?

Pick your own date. Make it clear that a lot will happen online and offline on July 5th but absolutely find your best time to bring a spotlight on the work of LGBTQ people in your organisations.

We are open to suggestions for 2020, so if you think you have a different date for it, please get in touch.
