Fire + Flood: Queer Resilience in the Era of Climate Change: ZOOM Movie Discussion

April 27 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join Sturgis Library for a discussion of the film, Fire + Flood: Queer Resilience in the Era of Climate Change, which you can view at home before the discussion, once you register for the program. Free and open to all. To sign up, email sturgisreference@comcast.net

This program is brought to you by a generous grant from the American Library Association’s Resilient Communities Program.

About the movie:

FIRE & FLOOD: QUEER RESILIENCE IN THE ERA OF CLIMATE CHANGE 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.

“Fire and Flood” was piloted at the National LGBTQ Task Force’s Creating Change Conference in January, 2018, with positive feedback on the need for these stories in the LGBTQ movement
