In addition to being an excellent scientist, Tessa is likely the world's only proud and out trans lesbian astrobiologist. Recently, she got the chance to share her empowering story during an interview with Sparky's Rainbow - a group highlighting the LGBTQ community at ASU. Tessa candidly shares her experience here at ASU and her perspective on a variety of topics. As always, we are incredibly proud!
