Trans and gender-diverse individuals bear a disproportionate burden of the impacts of climate change. Despite this, their climate-specific needs and challenges remain inadequately researched and underrepresented in both climate change discourse and governance spaces. My Senior Capstone Project draws public attention to the unique experiences and vulnerabilities of trans individuals within the broader context of climate-related issues, and advocates for their inclusion and resilience. My three public writing pieces delve into various dimensions of this intersection, understanding how climate change affects transgender individuals, emphasizing the importance of including transgender voices in climate justice and governance discussions, highlighting the resilience of transgender individuals in the face of climate challenges, and proposing new models for mapping and addressing trans-specific vulnerabilities to climate change.
