Fire & Flood Film Fund

Supports the creation of the Fire & Flood Film and provides mutual aid funds for Queer Resilience projects in California and Puerto Rico


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.

This documentary is still in production, and is being reformatted from a feature-length film to an online DocuSeries! By donating, you help us get one step closer to the release of this educational documentary series- including new interviews, animations, artist collaborations, Spanish translation, and funded community organizers supporting ongoing impact. Half of what we raise goes towards a mutual aid account that materially supports queer resilience.
