meeTIN*gs-Workshop *Queer Ecology: Land and Liberation*

10.06.2024 16:30 - 18:00 

The systems destroying the environment are often the same as those that exploit and oppress LGBTQIA+ people. Environmental devastation and queer precarity are bound together.

Just as we experience increased risks of violence, poverty, and marginalisation, we are also more exposed to the harms of a wrecked environment such as climate disasters and pandemics. As we experience reduced access to stable work, housing, or healthcare, we also lack access to land and the benefits of healthy ecosystems.

While oppressions of various kinds share common roots, so do our struggles for liberation. The fights to defend the environment and the struggles for queer liberation – as well as countless other movements - are intimately interconnected.

About the speaker: Kes Otter Lieffe is a writer, ecologist, facilitator and community organiser currently based near Berlin. She is the author of four queer speculative fiction novels, several short stories, and a colouring book series on queer ecology. Kes writes from a working-class, chronically ill, transfeminine perspective.
