Queer Communities Often Left Out of Disaster Planning Research Shows
Romero, E. (2022). Queer Communities Often Left Out of Disaster Planning, Research Shows. KQED.
The author tells the story of the Santa Rosa Trans Latinas, a trans community in California, some of whom are farmworkers whose work was interrupted by the Tubbs Fire in 2017 and subsequent wildfires. Their story highlights how LGBTQ+ people rely on their communities, are often left out of disaster planning more broadly, and how disaster preparedness and relief efforts can better serve LGBTQ+ communities in the future.
