Queer Ecology in Florida in new Documentary “Can’t Stop Change”

7/8/2024
This Monday on KPFA Radio’s Women’s Magazine, Kim Anno and Lisa Dettmer talk to queer ecology activists who are courageously fighting the climate crisis in Florida These inspiring and creative Queer activists are represented in the new film “Cant Stop Change: Queer Climate Stories from the Florida Frontlines”, that is now available to see online at Kinema at the URL kinema.com/films/cant-stop-change-queer-climate-stories-from-the-florida-frontlines-rclks for the month of July. “Can’t Stop Change” weaves together interviews with fourteen trans, queer, and Two-Spirit collaborators across Florida, bravely fighting for change in one of the most anti Queer states and a state that has been battered by natural and political storms: climate gentrification and displacement. These activists target the disproportionate affect natural disasters have oppressed communities based on race, class, and gender and link the environmental disasters with the political disasters of anti-abortion and ani-trans bills, permitless concealed carry laws; and white patriarchal corporate power that militarizes the police. Unlike many mainstream environmental groups these Queer ecology activists recognizes that we need deep structural change that challenges Cis Heterosexual white Capitalist patriarchy and doesn’t just treat symptoms. In the face of all of this devastation, these queer and trans ecology activists in Florida are courageously imagining a better future and tackling the issues head-on through mutual aid, building queer communities, and standing up to corporations and bad politics. In this stirring documentary they follow these inspirational activists as they tour the state, meet with mutual aid providers to uncover the challenges of each area, and learn about the passionate work being done to combat them. We talk to Vanessa Raditz, the Co-Director of Can’t Stop Change who is also a queer climate justice/queer ecology activist in the Southeast and Bay Area And we talk to Florida Native, Barbara Perez , who is PhD student at Florida Atlantic University where she is doing her dissertation on climate gentrification And lastly we talk to Rebecca Wood who is an Environmental Educator and Miami resident who is currently involved in local climate activism/community disaster preparedness The post Queer Ecology in Florida in new Documentary “Can’t Stop Change” appeared first on KPFA.

Queer women’s films – “Sally” and “A Fish Does Not Drown”

6/10/2024
Today on KPFA Radio’s Women’s Magazine we will talk to the directors of two of the films premiering this month at local Queer film festivals. The new documentary by Deborah Craig “Sally” is premiering at the the SF Frameline film festival, and this just finished feature length documentary about lesbian feminist activist, scholar,theologian, and local leader Sally Gerhardt is not to be missed. Sally Gearhart was a lesbian-feminist firebrand, professor, and fantasy author who spearheaded the 1970s and 80s US lesbian feminist movement. The new documentary about her life directed by Deborah Craig called SALLY! peels back proverbial (and patriarchal) layers to reveal the collectivist reality behind our heroine’s story while exploring the complex relationship between spokeswoman-like Sally and movements for social change. While the showings at the Frameline SF LGBTQIA film festival on June 26th at 6 and 8pm are already sold out, there may be rush tickets at the door. So go to frameline.org for more info. And you should keep an eye out for this inspiring film, “Sally” at other film festivals and to find out when it is hopefully picked up and distributed online for all of us to see go sallygearhartfilm.com to get info on future showings. And I talk to Loa Niumeitolu and Laura AnnCoelho, who are the directors and creators of the brand new film “A Fish Does Not Drown): Pasifika Communities During Prop 8.” In this documentary Pasifika LGBTQ+ people share poignant stories of how their own Pasifika families and community criminalized and betrayed them during Prop 8 to defend and uphold the Mormon and CatholicChurches attempt to prevent same sex marriage in California and how Queer Pasifika communities fought against that. This film will be showing for free Friday night at the International Queer Women of Color Film Festival at the beautifully renovated Presidio Theatre in San Francisco’s Presidio NationalPark. You can get tickets for this historic film “A Fish does not Drown” at qwocff.org and that film and all the films at the Queer Women of color film festival in SF are free. so don’t miss this film at part of the opening nite at the QWOCMAP festival starting June 14th and running thru Sunday June 16th with 44 original new films you won’t be able to find anywhere else xr:d:DAF78QmOJMc:36,j:4680786865201297579,t:24030718 The post Queer women’s films – “Sally” and “A Fish Does Not Drown” appeared first on KPFA.

Chicana Lesbians: The Girls Our Mothers Warned Us About

3/11/2024
Today Women’s Magazine host Lisa Dettmer talks to guests who celebrate and remember the groundbreaking anthology, Chicana Lesbians: The Girls our Mothers Warned us About. Published in 1991, the anthology is the first critical and creative book to specifically address the complex lives and challenges of Chicana lesbians. Described by Amazon as “the most important book ever published about Chicana lesbians,” the anthology included both established and emerging Chicana lesbian voices of the time who contributed poetry, testimonios, and essays. In their work, contributors considered the experiences of Chicana lesbians in regard to prominent Chicana feminist discussions while adding their original perspectives that sought to deconstruct dominant ideas about sexuality as it overlapped with race, gender, class, and other markers of difference. Importantly, the anthology also addressed the rampant lesbo-phobia that was intricately interwoven with patriarchy, racism, and classism. Now, over 30 years later, Chicana lesbian scholars are re-examining this preeminent text in the Journal of Lesbian Studies as a special two volume issue called “Re-Engaging the Iconic Text ‘The Girls Our Mothers Warned Us About.’” Today we are joined by 4 lesbiana and queer scholars to help us think about this pivotal book and the critical issues that it raised. We are joined by Liliana C. Gonzalez, Assistant Professor at Cal State University, Northridge, & Stacy I. Macias, Associate Professor at Cal State University, Long Beach, who are the co-editors of the 2-volume special issue of the Journal of Lesbian Studies. We are also joined by Carla Trujillo, who is the visionary editor of the original book, Chicana Lesbians: The Girls Our Mothers Warned Us About. Finally, we are joined by Ellie Hernández, Associate Professor at UC Santa Barbara, who is a contributor to both the 1991 anthology and to the current special issue re-engaging and honoring this formative text. We will look at the significance of these writings to queer and feminist of color scholarship and movements and to Chicana lesbian lives.
