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 initially piloted during a workshop 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. Since then, Queer Ecojustice Project and their fiscal host Out For Sustainability have continued to host sneak-peek screenings of the Fire & Flood Film to spread climate change awareness and resilience preparedness in  LGBTQ+ communities, and to raise funds for the completion of this grassroots media project.
