Donate $5 or more to the Open Collective this October and get access to the Fall 2020 version of the film AND the soon-to-be-released new chapters exploring the impacts of COVID-19 and recent disasters in these two communities.

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 film is still in production. "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. In Fall 2019, a sneak-peek of Fire & Flood was screened at 10 public events and over a dozen grassroots neighborhood screenings.This fall 2020, Queer Ecojustice Project and their fiscal host Out For Sustainability will be releasing the next round of sneak-peek screenings of the Fire & Flood Film to commemorate LGBTQ+ history month and the three-year anniversary of the two climate disasters shared in this film.
