How do ecological justice and queer liberation intersect?  As climate chaos escalates, LGBTQ people, especially QTBIPOC, are among frontline communities hit first and worst by the consequences. LGBTQ people also have a unique embodied knowledge of what it takes to change, transition, and survive and are leaders in climate justice movements across the globe. We will explore how queering our ecological justice movements is key to the restoration and exuberance of the planet’s biological & cultural diversity.

Deseree Fontenot is a collective member of Movement Generation: Justice and Ecology Project and co-founder of the Queer EcoJustice Project.  As a queer black organizer, farmer, and grassroots ecologist, Deseree’s movement work is focused on land and liberation, climate justice and queering ecological education.

She is an alumna of PSR’s MA in Social Transformation (MAST) degree program and former CLGS Program Manager.
