The Azolla Story: Queer/Trans People of Color with Disabilities Meet-up and Zine MakingFacilitators: Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, Stacey Milbern, Mia Mingus
TRACK: The Art & Practice of Disability Justice / INCITE! / To Tell You the TruthDo you dream of a political community by and for queer/trans POC
disabled folks? Let’s make it happen! Are you scared to call yourself
disabled or chronically ill because you feel like you’ve got enough
on your plate as a QTPOC? Is disability at the center of your
identity, work and life? Are you somewhere in between, figuring it
out? Come hang with our queer/trans of color fierce crips and talk
story, share dreams and visions, and move beyond survival to fighting
for a disability justice movement that places our queer brown
disabled stories at the center of our work. This is a caucus space to
build with each other and also a space to make a queer/trans of
color disabled zine about our experiences to use as an organizing,
healing and resiliency tool at the AMC, the U.S. Social Forum and
all our communities.
