Description

This workshop will discuss the radical potential of active engagement with cripsex for disability movements, communities, and realms of critical disability studies. Discussions of cultural and material barriers to sexuality will include an examination of issues impacting the ways disabled people find potential (a)sexual partners (e.g., access - lights/ing, physical hostility, proximity to transit, alcohol free environments; advertising; websites). These issues prompt powerful queries to engage with the politics of pleasure in our lives, and explore its (re)generative personal and community values.
