Virtual Screening of Fire & Flood: Queer Resilience in the Era of Climate Change – Feb 23


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. Watch the trailer.

Join the College of the Holy Cross’ Office of Sustainability, the Holy Cross Libraries, and PRIDE for this free virtual screening at 7pm on February 23rd, followed by a discussion with Prof. Alvero Jarrin and Britt Axelson ’21. We’ll use Scener for live conversation throughout the film.

This screening is financially supported by a grant from the Resilient Communities program within the American Library Association.
