Disabilities

Posted on

Being an LGBTQ+ individual can be difficult – more so if you are also disabled or have a health condition. For this reason, we at the LGBTa feel that it’s important that you’re properly represented.

We always make an effort to ensure that our safe-space socials are wheelchair accessible, or that there is a ramp on-hand if need be, and we are always more than happy to hear how we can better accommodate you.

Disability History Month takes place every year from the 22nd of November to the 21st of December – if you’d like to get involved with any campaigns, charity-drives, or awareness-raising movements, please let us know.

Here is a list of famous LGBTQ+ people with disabilities and some resources from the Equality Network.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our LGBT+ Students with Disabilities Rep, Jo, at joanna.gower@dur.ac.uk.
