Many LGBTQ folks with disabilities face barriers in participating in the annual celebration. It’s a symptom of a larger problem.

In this CBC article, activist Karli Drew discusses the barriers she faces accessing Pride events, and the frustrations she faces as a disabled person in the LGBTQ community. Her main suggestions to Pride organizers?

  • Actively recruit queer, disabled consultants as Pride event organizers.
  • Follow a variety of queer, disabled activists to learn what’s being done right, and what’s being done wrong.
  • Amplify queer, disabled voices.
  • Acknowledge queer, disabled existence.
