Queer and Disabled — a new YouTube series
27 April 2016
Queer and Disabled is a new YouTube series interviewing four young women who self-identify as both queer and disabled.
Annie Segarra, Rachel Anne, Robyn Lambird, and Erin E come from the United States, Canada, and Australia.
All four women have mainly physical disabilities including hypermobility, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and cerebral palsy.
The series sees them answer questions about what it's like to be someone who identifies as gay, lesbian, bisexual or pansexual and is also disabled.
They discuss accessibility issues, the representation of queer disabled people and the misconceptions people have about the sexuality of disabled people.
They also talk about the issue of fetishising disabled people when it come to sex, and how damaging that can be.
On the other end of the scale is how disabled people are often desexualised.
As the series goes on, they offer different ways to approach dating a disabled person.
