QUEERING CONSERVATION AND THE OUTDOORS
WITH SEATTLE AUDUBON
RECORDED JUNE 15, 2022
“Queer” is a verb. But what does it mean to “queer something?” And what does it look like in practice for the field of conservation and outdoor recreation?
In this conversation, Dr. Catriona Sandilands and Jas Maisonet explore the idea of queering conservation. They expose sexual and racial assumptions contained in concepts of nature, discuss how exploitation of nature and marginalized groups are related; and share why it’s important for LGBTQIA+ people to get involved in conservation and the outdoors.
