'Queer And Disabled' Is The New YouTube Series To See
This series will answer questions about the intersections of identifying as queer and having a disability.
Queer and Disabled is a new video series on YouTube featuring four young women who identify as queer and disabled. Annie Segarra, Rachel Anne, Robyn Lambird, and Erin E come from the US, Canada, and Australia.
All four of these women have mainly physical disabilities including hypermobility, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, and cerebral palsy.
In the series, the women answer questions about the intersections of identifying as queer and having a disability. They discuss accessibility, representation, fetishisation, and desexualisation as well as different ways to approach dating someone with a disability.
In the first video, titled 'Misconceptions,' the women answer the question, “What are some misconceptions you think people have about the sexualities of disabled people?”

Disclaimer: In the context of this video asexuality if referenced in order to discuss the two extremes of sexual desire. This is not to imply that there are no asexual disabled people but merely a call to avoid thinking of disabled people as either extreme and recognize them as individuals with varying identities.
