Advocacy & Arts – Intersectional Visibility
February 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
A free monthly creative workshop series for young LGBTQIA+ folks and their allies!
Join us for an engaging and creative workshop where we delve into the intricate tapestry of identity, focusing on the intersections of queerness and disability. This workshop is designed to be a safe space for sharing, listening, and understanding the unique challenges and experiences at the crossroads of these identities.
What to Expect:
Storytelling & Listening: The session will kick off with an intimate storytelling segment. Our facilitator will share their personal journey into queerness and disability, shedding light on the complexities and intersections of these identities. Participants are encouraged to listen, reflect, and prepare to explore their own narratives.
Collage Creation: As stories are shared, participants will engage in a hands-on activity – creating personal collages. This artistic process serves as a powerful medium for self-expression, allowing participants to visually represent their identities, experiences, and feelings.
Relaxed Group Discussion: Following the storytelling and collage-making, the workshop will transition into a relaxed and open conversation. This segment is an opportunity for participants to discuss how their various identities present themselves and the barriers they face in being their authentic selves in different environments. It’s a chance to share, learn from one another, and find common ground.
Who Should Attend:
This workshop is ideal for young LGBTIQA+ people interested in exploring the intersections of queerness and disability, as well as those who wish to gain a deeper understanding of these experiences. Whether you identify within these communities or are an ally seeking to learn more, you are welcome.
Isabella Choate they/them
Isabella is an award-winning lived experience advocate working across several spaces, including disability, LGBTQIA+, young carers, and suicide prevention. They are passionate about being unapologetically themselves; a disabled queer Asian young person. Join them as they explore how authenticity requires contemplation around societal expectations of the identities we hold, and how having multiple identities can both create and dismantle barriers. Explore your concept of ‘self’, in all its intersectional power!
All collage materials are provided
This event welcomes ALL to join, LGBTQIA+ members, and allies!
