LGBTIQ Disability Rights, Access and Inclusion
As a queer wheelchair user my training, workshops and keynotes centre on unpacking disability rights from an intersectional rights perspective utilising the social model of disability. I trouble the notion of ‘problem’ of disability being a personal/individual problem and instead show how it is in fact an issue of social justice and access. You will come away seeing the world differently with the tools to interrogate and address ableism. i provide guidance on how to make services and workplaces more accessible and diverse and how to embed access and inclusion in our thinking. I spend time unpacking some of the key barriers to accessing services for LGBTIQ people with disabilities and how can able people become agents for change to work towards a more inclusive society. I am a big believer that the personal is political, so i interweave all my work with personal stories to ground what i am saying as well as exploring how my experience is symptomatic of bigger systemic issues and i base this in the research on LGBTIQ people with disabilities particularly within an Australian context.
I also am an informative and engaging panel guest for events. I am a writer on LGBTIQ disability rights issues, and access and inclusion and am open to commission. I am a creative producer and performer with Quippings:Disiability Unleashed, a disability performance troupe in Melbourne. I provide lived experience access consultancy as a wheelchair user and am a fun and engaging MC for events.
