Pınar (they/them/theirs) is a mentor, guide, facilitator and consultant; co-founder Queer Nature, a project stewarding earth-based queer community through ancestral skills, nature-connection and vision fast guiding. Enchanted by the liminal, Pınar is a nonbinary indigenous futurist with Huanca, Turkish and Chinese lineages.
As a QTIBIPOC queer outdoor leader, their inspiration is envisioning decolonially-informed queer ancestral-futurism through interspecies accountability and the remediation of human exceptionalism in the Chthulucene. Their relationship with queerness, neurodivergence, indigeneity and belonging guided their work in developing Queer Ecopsychology with a somatic and depth approach through a decolonial lens. As a survival skills instructor, one of their core missions is to uplift and amplify the brilliant “survival skills” that BIPOC, LGBTQ2+ and other intersectional oppressed populations already have in their resilient bodies and stories of survivance.
