6 ways to build safer spaces for LGBTIQA+ folks

Zianna Fuad from Friends of the Earth Australia joins Phil Evans via phone to discuss LGBTIQA+ struggles, and how they intersect with climate justice work.

We also run through 6 ways to build more inclusive movements:

  1. Educate yourself about LGBTIQA+ struggles and share knowledge and resources.
  2. Challenge harmful perceptions and actions, especially if you’re straight and cis-gendered.
  3. Never assume identity - invite people to share if they feel safe to do so.
  4. Use inclusive language - in meetings, and in your campaigning, and organising materials.
  5. Be deliberately inclusive.
  6. Turn up and be good comrades.

Meanwhile check out the awesome work happening up at Camp Nunguu.
