In this talk, I will discuss how LGBT identity and mathematics intersect personally, professionally and historically. The talk will include the ways that my identity as someone who is underrepresented in the mathematics community due to my race and sexual orientation has played a role in my professional trajectory in the academy. It will also provide a brief recounting of the 1990s origins of Spectra, an organization for LGBT mathematicians, which dates back to a courageous response by national mathematical organizations to passage of a Colorado anti-gay rights ballot measure in 1992.
