Meet the ' 10 Coolest Queers in Science'

A good part of this blog spreading knowledge about lgbt history. With that in mind, I bet you don't know this guy:

His name is Bruce Voller and according to Unicorn Booty:

Not only was Bruce a pioneering biologist in the field of HIV/AIDS medicine — he gave AIDS its name — he was also a founding member of the National Gay Task Force. In the laboratory, he helped identify new ways to prevent the spread of viruses during sex; he also persuaded President Jimmy Carter to become the first sitting president to meet with an LGBT civil rights group.

Voller is just one of the 10 Coolest Queers in Science. Check out Unicorn Booty for the biographies of those you already knew and probably didn't know.
