Peterson Toscano: Queer Climate Champion

Happy Pride!  With gay marriage becoming legal in all 50 states, we at A Place to Start thought it's about time to ask the question: what does the LGBTQ movement have to do with racism, climate change, and faith?

Peterson Toscano is a God-send.  As a playwright, actor, Biblical scholar, blogger, gay activist, and practicing Quaker, he is changing the way America talks about climate change.  Here are some delightful snippets from his interview, spanning from #BlackLivesMatter to faith to coffee.  Enjoy!

(Also, don't forget to check out Peterson's amazing podcast, Climate Stew!)
