The International Society of Nonbinary Scientists

Building solidarity and discovering interesting things since 2020.

About Us

Who Are We?

ISNBS is an international community of nonbinary scientists. We come from the far reaches of the physical and social sciences. Some of us study desert birds. Others study immuno-oncology. Some of us write about science, or teach it. We are pretty fun at parties.

The group was established in 2020 to combat the isolation of being the “only ones” at our institutions, inspired by Dr. Sekazi Mtingwa and the National Society of Black Physicists.

Community Testimonials

Es alentador saber que no estoy tan sole como creía. It’s nice to know I’m not as alone as I thought.

Xakin Ramirez Isunza, Chemical Engineering graduate student from Mexico City

I expected to find a welcoming community, but I was surprised at how much science I learn from other members. A real interdisciplinary smorgasbord.

Oh, and we have t-shirts.
