The voices of six inspirational queer leaders are highlighted to challenge the lack of representation within the environmental movement. Included are Rachel Carson, whose landmark text, “Silent Spring”, paved the way for the modern environmental movement; Mahri Monson who works for the EPA in Washington; and Rikki Weber who works for the environmental law firm EarthJustice, who have spearheaded fights for climate justice, while also making their workplaces more inclusive for LGBTQ and gender non-conforming people. Also featured is Rebekah Paci-Green, co-director of an NGO that helps schools become more resilient to natural disasters, alongside Judi Brown and Lindi von Mutius, board members of “Out4Sustainability”, an NGO that seeks to mobilise the LGBTQ community to take part in environmental action.
