On Etsy since 2021

Our story

Behind Palaeoiris is a team of queer early-career STEM researchers who are passionate about our queer community and queer outreach. Representing many letters in LGBTQ+, our stories are different but united by a passion for science and for the wonderful people of the Rainbow.

Palaeoiris is our passion project. We work on it alongside our everyday science jobs. By buying our merchandise, you allow us to continue creating. Thank you!

We hope that the things we create here help LGBTQIA+ people in STEM and other natural history lovers express their pride in their careers, their scientific passions, and their queer identities. We want Palaeoiris to serve as a resource for queer scientists to connect with a global community of diverse, amazing individuals.

Just as importantly, Palaeoiris is about art! We combine the beauty of the natural world with the beauty of the unique, manifold “queer experience.” All with a heavy dose of colour! There are few things that can make us as happy as seeing our favourite things combined.

We want to share that happiness with you!

Palaeoiris is a brand dedicated to celebrating the Queer community and queer scientists. From our humble beginnings distributing trilobite badges at conferences, to the creation of our online store that keeps expanding on designs and scientific disciplines, to writing educational materials - we want to raise knowledge about the countless ways scientists experience queerness.

Palaeoiris has always been and will always be a completely inclusive brand that supports macro and micro queer identities. We hold intersectionality as a central tenet.

    Owner

    We're queer scientists who want to make LGBTQ+ Natural History lovers feel seen, heard, and celebrated. Our creations are here to give you that warm fuzzy feeling, but also to act as facilitators of impactful conversations that drive social change.

Production partners

  • A pin manufacturing factory

    United Kingdom

    This company produces pins and badges based on our designs. We handle design, packaging, and sending, so don't worry, your pins and button badges will be packed and sent by our Palaeoiris LGBTQ+ team. :)

  • Printful

    Wolverhampton, England

    This is a fulfilment centre that creates products made to order for us. We are currently not in a position to handle manufacturing, mass-ordering and storing of these items so this is a compromise that allows our designs to be printed on many other products.

  • StickerApp

    Sweden

    This company produces stickers based on our designs. We handle design, packaging, and sending, so don't worry, your stickers will be packed and sent by our Palaeoiris LGBTQ+ team. :)
