Museum Talks: LGBTQ2+ farmers and homesteaders in rural Ontario

Published on:

Where do queerness and farming intersect? Through archival research and interviews with contemporary farmers and homesteaders, this talk explores what queer agriculturalists bring to the table. Does an LGBTQ2+ identity lead to novel farming methods? How do LGBTQ2+ people navigate belonging, visibility, self-sufficiency, and community in rural areas? This talk aims to be accessible and informative for members of the queer community as well those who do not identify within this spectrum.  Now on YouTube.

Currently a doctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge, Rachel has also worked as a journalist and as a farm worker.
