A panel discussion with local queer and disabled leaders about the intersection of identity and the knowledge of leadership that comes with it featuring Neve Mazique, a Disabled multigender femme artist; Catalleya Storm, a Black Deaf writer; and ChrisTiana ObeySumner, social equity consulting firm CEO and a Black/Indigenous, Queer, Non-Binary, and multiply disabled person. In this conversation around disability justice, the panel explores how lived experiences can lead the way into dismantling the systems of oppression currently in place. Perhaps most importantly, they celebrate the joy, abundance, creativity, and care that the disability and queer communities have in connection with one another, and honor the relatives who paved the way. Produced by Seattle Disabilities Commission, Seattle LGBTQ+ Commission, and Town Hall Seattle.
