A Queer Quaker Response to Cimate Change–WWWWD? (Hartford, CT)


Event Details


Enough with the gloom and doom! People are hungry for new ways of looking at climate change. Peterson Toscano, a quirky, queer Quaker provides a lively, insightful, and at times hilarious presentation that helps his audiences wrap their heads and hearts around global warming. This is NOT your normal climate change presentation. Filled with hope, honesty and humor, Peterson’s audiences open up as they consider their roles on a new planet.  Peterson helps us  look at our current climate crisis from multiple angles including as a human rights issue as well as a deeply spiritual one. No one gets mocked or guilted into action, instead audience members relax and walk away with fresh ideas and hope.

What exactly does Peterson Toscano do?? Listen to this recent short feature on public radio:

Peterson talks about why as a gay comic he thinks climate change is a ridiculously serious issue.

Through the lens of relatable, endearing and hilarious characters we found ourselves considering the intersections between LGBTQ justice and climate change, what we can learn from the LGBTQ struggle for justice and the infinite resources available to us through these relationships.
