Hello all!

For the first time this year, we’re organizing a special lunch at POPL solely for LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and related identities) attendees, to provide a safe space for us to chat, network and share solidarity. The lunch is open to students, post-docs, faculty, and other members of the POPL community; we hope it helps to establish new connections among queer researchers in PL, and to foster an atmosphere within the PL community that welcomes, supports, and values researchers of all identities.

The event will be held in a private room within the hotel (the Endymion room) on Wednesday, January 22, from 12:30pm-2pm. If you’re interested in joining us for lunch, you can RSVP either by:

  • Sending an email to popl-lunch@mit.edu (please mention any dietary restrictions!), or
  • Signing up at this Google form. The form will not automatically collect your email or require you to sign in.

(We’re collecting RSVPs to get a headcount, but please note that anonymity is allowed: it’s always a good idea not to entrust potentially vulnerable computer systems with information that could endanger you.)

If you have any questions, please reach out either to the popl-lunch@mit.edu address or to Alex Lew at alexlew@mit.edu.

Thanks, and hope to see you there!
