SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN publishes an ad from the Lesbian and Gay Associated Engineers and Scientists. Science News refused to run the ad. An interesting note: I went looking for an image of the cover o the May 1982 edition of Scientific American to accompany this entry. I spent the better part of an hour on line, searching, and finally finding a site where every cover of Scientific American could be seen from as far back as September 1846 (this is a venerable publication that has been around for a long, long time.) I found all the covers for 1982…all except the one for May, 1982. I could get April (which is the illustration here) and I could find June. But May was not there. If anyone can find this cover, I would be interested in seeing the cover, just out of sheer curiosity. Also, it seems the “Lesbian and Gay Associated Engineers and Scientists” no longer exists. Did they break up into Lesbian Associated Engineers and Scientists? Or Gay Associated Engineers and Scientists? Or Just Gay Engineers? Or just Lesbian Scientists?

Inquiring minds want to know.
