Queer Youth Demand Action Against Climate Change
Students around the world protested on Friday against environmental inaction.
Thousands of students around the world skipped school Friday to protest for action on climate change. These protests were initiated by young people, like 12-year-old activist Haven Coleman and 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, who has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for her efforts to combat global warming. The Advocate spoke to lesbian, gay, and nonbinary youth at the Los Angeles protest in front of City Hall.
