History has shown that vulnerable communities are the ones to be in largest danger of being further marginalized during a crisis, and the group of people who carry the heaviest burden. In the case of climate change, this is arguably the single most dangerous threat ever faced by humanity. All the development accomplishments, including the achievements on LBTQ+ rights, could be erased within barely a decade by exacerbating resource scarcity and social unrest.


Acknowledging that there is still progress to be achieved, it is important to recognize that the LGBT+ movement has significantly advanced in the last couple of decades. This has been the result of a cohesive organization, where leading activist have been able to effectively coordinate to reach high levels of social and political influence. Nevertheless, all the development accomplishments, including the achievements on LBTQ+ rights, could be erased within barely a decade by exacerbating resource scarcity and social unrest.
