Queer Ecology with miles Lewis
Wednesday, March 9th | 11:30 - 1 pm PST | tinyurl.com/QueerEcology
A meditative workshop where we envision how our bodies, societies, and natural environment can coexist in peace, pleasure, and sustainability. Participants of all genders, sexualities, and beliefs are welcome.
Miles Lewis is a painter, art and environmental educator, and community organizer in the San
As an educator, his aim is to help students develop skills for making their perception more holistic, practical, and inventive. This applies just as much to drawing, painting, and composition, as it does to bodies, nature, and the material economy. His interest in queer ecology comes from the conviction that the successes of gay rights and sexual liberation suggest real pathways for a kinder and greener world.

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. The film was created by Queer Ecojustice Project.
Queer Ecojustice Project organizes at the intersection of ecological justice and queer liberation. We are storytellers weaving together the threads of a complex, multidimensional story of queer survival and collective ecological futures through collaborative projects that aim to catalyze culture, consciousness, and community.
