POSTPONED: Panel – Queer & Trans BIPOC Disability Activisms

Due to unforeseen circumstances this panel discussion will be postponed. We are committed to making sure that this panel takes place and will announce a new date as soon as we can. Thank you all for your support and interest and we hope that you will join us then.

 

Queer & Trans BIPOC Disability Activisms

 

Queer and Trans Black, Indigenous and People of Colour’s (QTBIPOC) perspectives are commonly missing from mainstream accounts of disability activism and organizing in Toronto, despite being a critical and driving force in disability movements. This panel will centre the voices and experiences of disabled QTBIPOC community organizers and activists. Speakers on this panel will discuss the ways in which ableism is complicit with anti-black racism, settler colonialism, homophobia and transphobia, racism and imperialism. They will also discuss their experiences with disability activism and how these intersecting structural oppressions are being challenged through community organizing.
