Behind Palaeoiris is a team of queer early-career STEM researchers who are passionate about our queer community and queer outreach. Representing many letters in LGBTQ+, our stories are different but united by a passion for science and for the wonderful people of the Rainbow.
Palaeoiris is our passion project. We work on it alongside our everyday science jobs. By buying our merchandise, you allow us to continue creating. Thank you!
Palaeoiris is a brand dedicated to celebrating the Queer community and queer scientists. From our humble beginnings distributing trilobite badges at conferences, to the creation of our online store that keeps expanding on designs and scientific disciplines, to writing educational materials - we want to raise knowledge about the countless ways scientists experience queerness.
Palaeoiris has always been and will always be a completely inclusive brand that supports macro and micro queer identities. We hold intersectionality as a central tenet.
