Queer And Disabled Discuss Representation And Accessibility

Does media representation affect how the community is perceived in real life?


Published:

Annie Segarra, Rachel Anne, Robyn Lambird, and Erin E come from the US, Canada, and Australia. All four identify as queer and disabled and have produced a new video series on YouTube to discuss questions about identifying as queer and having a disability.

In the series, questions about the intersections of identifying as queer and having a disability are discussed. Accessibility, representation, fetishisation, and de-sexualisation as well as different ways to approach dating someone with a disability will also be discussed throughout the series.

This week’s video asks the questions:

“Do you think media representation of queer disabled folks affects how we are perceived in real life?”

“Do you feel like LGBTQ+ spaces are accessible to you? Do you feel welcome in those spaces and in queer culture in general?”
