Mercy Shammah & Wild Diversity


Portland, Oregon

What's at the top of your bucket list?
To create endless amount of space for BIPOC & LGBTQ to thrive in the outdoors! ...does that count as bucket list?

Tell us about your dream trip.
I love spending time in the community. My dream trip would be a full weekend with people of color and queers sharing stories and connecting in the wild with no one else around. Kind of like a Brokeback Mountain trip but with less cowboy hats and more brown people. ...I guess I should professionally say 'with less sex' too.

What's your favorite thing about Next Adventure?
Well, Next Adventure has been a place I loved going to. It was always an adventure going from room to room and a place to dream big. Now that I have gotten to know the beautiful humans that make up next adventure it is a home, a place to retreat to and be seen.

What's your favorite product at Next Adventure?
I love my hammock! I love my sleeping bag that keeps me warm. I have a hoarding mentality towards water bottles. I love anything and everything in my camp kitchen setup-- because food!

Tell us a little more about yourself!
I am the founder of Wild Diversity and I love bring community together and making it more accessible for marginalized communities. I like just being in the outdoors. No goals, no requirements, just being out of routine and being present in a space surrounded by trees.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
Sometimes I eat two pints of ice cream in one day and I do not scrub between my toes in the shower.
