#Disabled People Are Not An Inconvenience w/ @Keah_Maria — #KatieSpeakShow Ep125 3/17/2018

In brief: The lovely, the outstanding Keah Brown is back on the show for the one-year anniversary of #DisabledAndCute to talk about current attacks on disability rights. We also chat about the frustration of having to compartmentalize identities when moving in circles that erase disability and/or queerness and/or blackness and/or women and how our movements must get better at inclusiveness and intersectionality.

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at PAYPAL.me/KatieSpeak. Thank you!
