"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.

Open to the public, this free and virtual screening will take place 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM on February 23rd. We'll use Scener to hold live chat conversations throughout the film. Immediately afterward, a Holy Cross panel, including Professor Alvaro Jarrin, will answer audience questions.

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