Chatting with Crystal about LGBTQ responses to Climate Change

Crystal Cheatham

I LOVE it when people are curious about climate change. I can’t think of anything more attractive in a person than their interest in expanding their understanding of the world. One such person is singer/songwriter, activist, creative communicator, and one of the most fun people to hang out with, Crystal Cheatham. In her own words:

I’ve spent a lot of time trying to cope with that experience and while I’ve done a lot of growing I still have questions. I’m constantly working to reconcile my confluence of identities with the image of what the world expects a black woman to be like. As it turns out I’m also a lesbian and have great faith in God. It’s not easy work, especially in a society like ours that doesn’t quite embrace difference and diversity, as I’m sure you know too. I do what I can to document my journey through music, podcasts, videos and articles but it never seems like enough.

Crystal is full of good ideas including an upcoming phone app for LGBTQ people of faith.

It is in her role as podcaster that we most recently interacted. We had a spirited discussion about climate change. We looked at it from some pretty unconventional angles, including through the lens of pet care, coffee consumption, and LGBTQ justice.

Have a listen to Lord Have Mercy podcast.
