random science 21: Jack Andraka

 source: Wikipedia: Jack is openly gay teenager who developed a new, rapid, and inexpensive method to detect the presence of pancreatic, ovarian, and lung cancer during early stages... When asked about his willingness to be interviewed and his sexual orientation, Jack responded "That sounds awesome! I’m openly gay and one of my biggest hopes is that I can help inspire other LGBT youth to get involved in STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics]. I didn’t have many [gay] role models [in science] besides Alan Turing."
