Greetings, lovely followers!
My name is Max, and I’m thrilled to join Zee and Kyle as a mod for QwD. I suppose a [hopefully brief] bio is in order.
I’m a 25-year-old white gay trans man from the great state of New York (he/him/his pronouns please). I am also a congenital bilateral below-the-elbow amputee which is a fancy way of saying that I was born with arms that end just below the elbow. In addition, I have some minor mobility limitations due to some nerves missing in my lower spine and legs that didn’t quite develop properly. I’m also neurodivergent, with clinical depression, generalized anxiety disorder, ADHD, and possibly some other undiagnosed brain things. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that the overlapping of my queerness and disabilities occurs in unique and sometimes unpredictable ways. And I’m equally sure many of you have firsthand experience of what I’m talking about.
Sometime soon I will try to make a post that examines some of the results and conditions of this overlapping, but I think this is enough for now. If you’d like to ask me more questions, suggest/submit posts, or just say hello, feel free to contact us here, or to come on over to my main blog at radicalspacecub.tumblr.com.
Take care of yourselves!
