DID YOU KNOW?
LGBTQ ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS
Did you know that the global environmental movement was founded by an LGBTQ person - scientist and marine biologist Rachel Carson of the United States? Her ground-breaking book 'Silent Spring' (1962) came from her scientific studies into the effects of the chemical DDT and other pesticides on natural habitats around the world.
Today, it is common to have government ministers tasked with administering such environmental regulations. In addition, there are a significant number of private enterprises with a focus on environmental protection.
There are many high-profile LGBTQ individuals today, and from the past, involved in environmental protection. They hail from countries such as Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Finland, the United States, Norway, Australia, Italy, and Romania. Their biographies reveal a group of talented individuals with a social conscience on an issue which affects our everyday life. To see the complete list, CLICK HERE
