Dreaming the Queer Ecological Future | Youth Leadership
Why is it that for centuries we LGBTQ people have been called "unnatural" or "crimes against nature" when we are as completely part of nature as all other living beings? Come join us for a participatory, immersive exploration of: gender and sexual diversity on this planet; the healing powers of plant allies; and storytelling practices that highlight resilience in both the human and non-human worlds. Together, we'll reclaim our place as forces of nature within diverse social ecosystems, and we'll dream together of a queer ecological future where all beings can exist in harmony and peace. With: Orion Camero, visual storytelling educator and community organizer affiliated with the Beehive Design Collective; Vanessa Raditz, farmer, environmental educator, co-founder of the Queer Ecojustice Project collective.
