Fire and Flood: Queer Resilience in the Era of Climate Change

September 25, 2019 - 7:00pm
Science & Engineering Library, Lederle GRC Lowrise, UMass Amherst, USA

This screening is part of Climate Preparedness Week, a state-wide initiative, which includes approximately 50 climate change events in libraries across Massachusetts. It tells the story of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the fires in Santa Rosa, California, two-near simultaneous climate-related disasters in the fall of 2017, through the voices of LGBTQ people who lived through them and were part of the community response. The film explores the vulnerability of LGBTQ communities to climate disasters and also lifts up queer and trans strategies for resilience, transition, and survival.

Free and open to the public
