Fab Planet Summit 2020 Sessions*
What is a Fabulous Planet?
Focused on OUT for Sustainability’s vision of a Fabulous Planet, we propose to explore the expansive hopes and sometimes harsh challenges in defining and realizing a fabulous planet for all.
Our Queer Environment
Building an intersectional movement takes tremendous effort, remarkable timing, and authentic need. We will unpack what a queer environment means from multiple angles of experience and success.
Are we #Qready?
Qready started as a preparedness guide for climate and natural disasters, but it is much more than that when we ponder the current climate disaster and its impact on LGBTQ+ communities. We propose to explore resilience, adaptation, and other means of responding to the current state of our planet, and thrive as a community.

“Climate change itself is already queer…questioning how we should live now and into the future.”

Fab Planet Summit History
OUT for Sustainability has hosted an annual gathering of LGBTQ sustainability leaders since 2009. The first Social Sustainability Conference hosted 60 participants in Seattle, Washington for five panels on intersectional topics ranging from “race and housing” to “age and community.” The spirit of this was continued by the Coming Out Local dinners, hosting 100 guests per year to highlight the value of local economy in creating communities that celebrate diversity. In addition to this large annual events, OUT4S hosted dozens of community Salons on topics ranging from the “social impact of food systems” to “green building in the gayborhood.”
Identifying the value and uniqueness of the content at OUT4S events, Fab Planet Summit was launched to build on the spirit of these gatherings to achieve a deeper connection for broader change.
