If you’ve ever thought about being a lady in the streets, but a freak on the peaks – this one’s for you! Thigh high boots, full glam and bouncy curls for days – Mother Nature’s had a makeover, and we’re not mad about it. In the first episode of Season 2 of TEDxLondon’s Climate Curious we’re joined by the iconic environmentalist and intersectional drag queen, Pattie Gonia, who explains the need for everyone to connect to nature, why we must diversify the climate movement and why queer ecology is so much more than “gay dolphins in the ocean” – urging us to “advocate for our one true Queen, Mother Nature with all of our creativity and intersectional identities.” Join co-hosts Maryam Pasha and Ben Hurst to discover why Pattie believes the outdoors isn’t just for white, straight, cis males, but instead, for everyone – especially Queer people and other marginalised groups, how you can be an environmentalist and still love your sofa and why hiking in 6-inch heels feels so right.
