WHAT YOUR FUNDS WILL DO:
The 2002 Queer Disability Conference will bring together over 200 lesbians, gay men, bisexual, intersexed and transgendered people who have physical and mental disabilities, to network, organize, educate ourselves, and celebrate our lives. Participants at the conference will share academic research, advocacy strategies, and cultural performances. We are hoping that you will join us in making this exciting event happen. By co-sponsoring or donating to this conference, you will be making an important contribution to the rights of LGBT people with disabilities.
This two-day conference will address a variety of issues important to the queer disability community. Although presentations by academics and scholars will play an integral role in the conference, equal emphasis will be given to queer disability activists engaged in social change and artists committed to creating a vital queer crip culture. The program will encompass a wide variety of presentation formats: workshops, performances, poetry readings, displays of artwork, and paper panels. Among the possible topics which may be covered at the conference, we expect to include the following:
San Francisco State University has generously donated
