The University of St.Gallen respects all its members regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity. Thanks to a student initiative, PrideMonth has been celebrated annually on campus since 2020 and is supported by the University. The University of St.Gallen is proud to be an LGBTIQ pioneer in Swiss higher education.

Biologist and science educator Forrest Valkai explains how the binary gender system (doesn’t) work(s). The key insight from a biological perspective: we do not need to pigeonhole everyone into one of two categories, so let’s celebrate diversity!

"We all live on a spectrum and people are under no obligation to make sense to YOU!"
