OUT HERE: queer farmer film project

July 15th, 2013 by caitlyn

During Pride weekend in June, I saw a really fantastic documentary by one-time Bay Area farmer Jonah Mossberg called Out Here which features interviews and perspectives from a handful of queer farmers across the US. It was so incredibly inspiring. The interviews — mostly a collection of thoughts about farming, identity, community, family, rural and urban living from an often underrepresented queer perspective — were refreshing and wise and honest and endearing. It was inspiring to hear farmers from across the country describe what farming means to them, what it means within various communities, and how different identities (farmer, queer, activist) can intersect.

I am so glad this film was made and I highly recommend it. If it’s playing near you, don’t miss it, and if it’s not playing near you, you might get in touch with the filmmakers to see about organizing a screening.

    I am a 21 year old traveller from Australia. I am in San Francisco for 3 weeks and was hoping to work on an urban farm while i was here. I lived with a group of people in chicago that ran an urban farm and it piqued my interest.

    Do you by any chance have any opportunities available?
