The first backpacking drag queen is creating a joyful force for climate action by reconnecting queer and marginalized people with nature.
The wonderful writing and correct use of he/they, she/they, to make the article portray the dignity of queerness rather than cisheteronormativity.... I'm feeling elated that maybe journalists can be more inclusive and am so glad I subscribe.
So much love here. So many incredibly powerful and healing connections; outdoor alchemy with a vibrant sense of joy, song and play. Nine bows of gratitude!
Saving the planet while SLAYING. Love it.
Hell yeah HEATED!! Need more queer voices (and joy) in climate journalism. Proud to be a subscriber 💪
As a queer person who has done so much thinking and discovery around the inherent queerness of nature (nonlinear, nonbinary, etc.), this piece of reporting felt like such a welcome hug - like a relief. Thank you!
Oh sure, like anyone threatening to boycott North Face EVER went on a hike wearing North Face. I suspect many of them have never even been on a hike.
(Bud Light drinkers, on the other hand .... ;-)
Wonderful interview, and the more free flowing nature of it. It was fantastic to listen to especially during this month. And talking about connection between your identity and broadening what is possible was great to hear.
The fact HEATED covers these kinds of topics and interviews people not usually considered part of the climate space, is why it is not only awesome, but important.
Again thank you.
The colour and the energy of this are beautifully inspired. Yay Pattie. Yay Emily.
