The Unique Wisdom of Intersectional Identities: A Panel With Local Queer and Disabled Leaders

October 21, 2020

From event hosts:

2020 marks the thirtieth anniversary of the passage of the ADA. While there is still much work to be done, there is also much to celebrate. In partnership with the Seattle Disabilities Commission and the Seattle LGBTQ+ Commission, Town Hall invites you to this panel about the intersection of identity and the knowledge of leadership that comes with it, featuring Neve Mazique, a Disabled multigender femme artist; Catalleya Storm, a Black Deaf writer; and ChrisTiana ObeySumner, social equity consulting firm CEO and a Black/Indigenous, Queer, Non-Binary, and multiply disabled person.
In a radical conversation around disability justice, the panel explores how lived experiences can lead the way into dismantling the systems of oppression currently in place. Perhaps most importantly, they celebrate the joy, abundance, creativity, and care that the disability and queer communities have in connection with one another, and honor the relatives who paved the way.
Presented by Town Hall Seattle, Seattle Disabilities Commission & Seattle LGBTQ+ Commission
