The Queer & Accessible project is working with LGBTIQ+ events, venues and safe spaces, offering practical assistance, financial support and advice as well as promoting accessible events to the LGBTIQ+ and disability communities, with an initial focus on PrideFEST 2021.
Project Officers Sarah Collins and Jack Meakins both have lived experience of LGBTIQ+ identities and disability, as well as professional experience in both LGBTIQ+ and disability sectors. While they each have different experiences within their LGBTIQ+ and disability identities, both have on many occasions experienced being the only person with visible disability in a queer space and the only openly LGBTIQ+ person in a disability space.
For LGBTIQ+ People with Disability
LGBTIQ+ people with disability are invited to steer the direction of the project through participating in consultations, completing an online survey or contacting us directly. Living Proud is also employing LGBTIQ+ people with disability for our Experts by Experience panel.
Please contact us if you would like to be part of our next round of consultations (planned for early in 2022).
