Today at Berkeley Lab

Lab Staff Profiled as Part of Gay Pride Month

June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, a nationwide salute to diversity.

In keeping with that spirit, three members of the Berkeley Lab community — Susan Synarski, Jay Keasling, and Christel Cantlin — share with TABL what LGBT Pride Month means to them. More>
