TransChat: Disability

#TransChat is a monthly twitter chat on the last Sunday of every month for trans/gender diverse people, hosted by the Ygender twitter account. We’ll be kicking off at 6pm AEST on the 29th of September and this month we’re talking about disability

The questions will be:

Q1. Does your queerness influence the way that you relate to your disability or disabled identity?

Q2. Has your relationship to disability changed over time?

Q3. How do you deal with queer spaces that are ableist/inaccessible? What about disability spaces that don’t respect your gender or sexuality?

Q4. How do we make queer spaces disability inclusive and disabled spaces queer and trans inclusive?

Q5. Who’s already doing great work in this space? Any activists, queer disabled people, articles, or videos we should be looking at?

If you respond to a question such as Q1, your tweet should follow this format: 

“A1 [your message] #TransChat”.

If your tweets contain potentially triggering content, please include appropriate specific CWs!

Remember to use the #TransChat hashtag when you tweet so others can follow the discussion, and don’t forget to capitalise both words in the hashtag - it makes it easier to read and we want our online spaces to be accessible! 

You can see the whole discussion by following #TransChat (or searching it), and setting the page to ‘Latest’. This is also a great way to check out past chats!

Looking forward to talking to you!
