Mmm yeah, one of my close friends called today to tell me his friend’s girlfriend, who lives in Portland, is queer and into disability activism. Neither of us know this person (Portland is pretty much the other side of the continent) but we cheered over the news and then tried to think of ways that we could explore the intersections [things people share]between the two communities a bit more.
Looking back on today, it’s funny how “little” things like this are huge when you’re in the early stages of things and you don’t know a lot of people with similar interests. : )
This friend and I were interviewed for an article about crips and queers back in June. (Page 14 of the pdf).
