A search for home in times of crisis  

Who gets to tell the stories of conservation and whose voices are silenced? What might resisting the destruction of our environment really mean? In this event – part presentation, part story-telling – speculative fiction author and activist, Kes Otter Lieffe, will explore some of the interweaving strands of queer ecology and what they could bring to our social movements. She asks how learning from non-human nature could help marginalised communities become stronger and how solidarity and mutual aid might help to decentre the stories of a powerful few. She invites us to take a full breath and dream deeper – for the sake of our future, and survival.

• Kes Otter Lieffe is a working class, chronically ill, femme, trans woman. She is an author, facilitator and community organiser, currently based near Berlin. She is the author of the Queer Animals and Plants series, several short stories and Margins, a trilogy of queer and trans speculative fiction novels. In these futuristic stories, marginalised characters take centre stage in powerful resistance movements. Everything is at stake and so much is possible.
