TAKING IT GLOBAL

Around the world, young people, people of colour and members of the LGBT+ community are leading the movement to fight the climate crisis. Jade Wilson highlights some of those changemakers taking a stand.

People of colour are disproportionately affected by the climate crisis. Those across the global south are already facing the impacts - including displacement, exploitation and death due to climate disasters. So too are LGBT+ people far more likely than their straight, cisgender counterparts to fall into poverty or homelessness. Worldwide, it is estimated that 40% of homeless youth are LGBT+, therefore, putting the community at a greater risk of facing the impacts of ecological breakdown.

About GCN

Welcome to one of our personal favourites - the annual Youth Issue. Inside, we hear from the next generation of LGBT+ change-makers who speak about the issues that matter to them. There’s an inspiring photo piece on the recent School Strikes For Climate Change by the wonderful Babs Daly who also captured the cover image. We look at an LGBT+ asylum seeker who entered the Direct Provision system at age 13 and there’s an essential piece on the rising numbers of homeless LGBT+ youth. We talk about the need for alcohol-free spaces for younger LGBT+ folk while inside you’ll also find the results of the EMIS survey to improve the health of gay, bi and MSM. On the entertainment side we have interviews with comedian Hannah Gadsby, the creators of the startling theatre show Faultline, and there’s a fun introduction to the next generation of drag artists. With the youth of this country demanding change, we can rest assured that if the contributors to this issue are leading the charge, the status quo is about to get a jolt. Enjoy.
