The LGBTQ+ Community and the Good Food Movement
The good food movement must be inclusive to create a more just and thriving food system. This session will highlight the contributions and challenges of the queer community in agriculture and food. Our speakers are leading the way to advocate for and amplify the many voices of the LGBTQ+ community in diverse parts of the food system. Join us for a rich discussion with Nikiko Masumoto (Masumoto Family Farm), Keegan Kautzky (World Food Prize), Nate Looney (Westside Urban Gardens), and Danielle Nierenberg (Food Tank), to explore the current state of queer visibility and access while celebrating what it means to be a queer farmer, artist, activist, grower, and more.
