Jan 12 –
Join us at LightHouse for the Blind for an open community discussion about sex, intimacy and disability. Through this conversation, we hope to challenge the common misconception that having a disability diminishes one’s sexuality. This panel will create a safe place for people of all abilities to come together and proudly claim that having a disability is a natural and normal enhancement of the human experience.
Who: Members of disability communities and their loved ones, disability rights advocates and allies, members of the professional communities who serve the disabled (e.g. educators, health care professionals, social workers etc.), sexual health and disability scholars, and anyone else who is interested. Must be 18+ years old to attend.
When: January 12, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
Where: LightHouse Headquarters, 1155 Market St., 10th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103
Cost: Free to Attend.
This panel features an incredible lineup of panelists who are all disabled. Many work and/or volunteer their time to promote and educate their communities to improve the sexual rights of individuals with disabilities. This conversation is an opportunity to come together and discuss how we can challenge the harmful stereotypes and misunderstandings about disability, disability rights and sexuality.
Panelists will have the opportunity to share their own experiences, talk about the work that they do and the topics they are passionate about. The remainder of the time will be allotted to and audience Q&A to invite a community dialogue. We expect people from all walks of life to attend this event; it is bound to cover a wide range of informative and educational topics. Please note that the conversation is adult in nature and so we are restricting the space to adults age 18 and over.
Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to explore the impact of ableism on sexuality and the disabled. Come prepared to ask questions, and learn different ways to promote sexual freedom and expression as a human right for all people regardless of their abilities.
