Through his one-person comedies and lively lectures, Peterson Toscano has delighted audiences throughout North America, Europe, and Africa as he takes on social justice concerns. His plays and talks humorously explore the serious topics of LGBTQ issues, sexism, racism, privilege,  gender, and climate change. Concerned about climate change as a human rights and LGBTQ issue, Peterson shares his gifts on his YouTube videos and on stage. A Quaker and obsessive gardener, he leads the Sunbury chapter of the Citizens' Climate Lobby with his husband and organizes trips to South Africa for the Susquehanna University Global Opportunities’ program. A recognized scholar who has highlighted gender variance in the Bible, Peterson’s personal journey to accept himself as gay had been long and complicated. Through performances, media appearances, and community organizing, he has raised public awareness about the harm that comes from seeking to suppress and change one’s sexuality and gender differences.
