Queereka Writers

D Ruth Bavousett

I'm an older, late-transitioning, mobility-limited transwoman, technologist, and romance novel fan. My advocacy interests include the intersection of disability and gender-non-conformity, with special interest in the connections between those things and the technology industry. The needs of older LGBT people are also of great interest for me, as well, as I approach my own older years. I'm the parent of two grown daughters, chief-of-staff for two obnoxious cats, and the grandmother of the most beautiful baby boy on earth.


Ren is a trans woman who loves philosophy, science-fiction, fantasy, good TV, and video games. When provoked, she is prone to rambling about feminism, sex theory, and psychoanalysis.


Veronica is a PhD candidate in high energy physics at the University of Oslo, Norway. She loves science, and is a total science-fiction nerd. She's a queer feminist, a secular humanist, and of course a skeptic. She spends most of her free time working for one of the major LGBTQ+ organisations in Norway. She is the editor of the Norwegian Skepchick blog, but also writes for some of the other blogs in the network. She can be found on Twitter as @VeronicaInPink.
