Tuesday, September 24th | 6:00-8:00 PM
The Newark Public Library, 1st Floor LGBTQ Center | 5 Washington Street, Newark, NJ 07102

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.

The Newark Public Library is pleased to have the opportunity to display a draft cut of Fire & Flood. Attendees can look forward to a sneak peek of the film, a discussion of how its themes relate to the LGBTQ community in Newark, and light refreshments.
