so, im getting kinda nervous because I am supposed to be facilitating a workshop tomorrow about the intersections of homophobia & ableism. I am really excited to have the opportunity to speak specifically about the connections (and to extend it to dealing with chronic illness), but im worried that 1) folks arent going to get it 2) its going to be boring and 3) no one is going to come.
since you all are such *experts* in dealing with these connections, i'd love to have you and your brains present at my workshop. nyc-based folks, this means you. here's the details. hope to see you there! (feel free to send encouragement :))
