Currently’s Aarohi Sheth has a story up today about queer communities on the frontlines of the climate crisis:
“[Queer people] are no strangers to living in a world that can’t hold us — a world that seems like it’s burning up — both literally, because of the climate, and figuratively because our rights and bodies are constantly under attack, subject to discrimination, heteronormativity, homophobia, and transphobia.”
