Honestly being disabled affects so many LGBT+ people.
In my town there is only 1 bar that has wheelchair access and guess what?! It’s not the gay bar!
Gay bars are also not accessible (the vast majority of the time) to those who are sensitive to bright lights and loud sounds. Example; some people with epilepsy, autism, PTSD, Tourettes, social anxiety, ect.
The pride march I went to last year would not be accessible (reasonably) for someone in a wheelchair or let’s be real, anyone who can’t walk for an hour +.
The local LGBT+ group I meet up at tries to be accessible but often forgets that if a location has to be changed then the same level of access will almost certainly not apply to the new location.
The LGBT+ friendly bookshop I visited while overseas had a tiny door which barely fit my small wheelchair. There was also a step halfway through the store which meant I only got to view half of the books that were aimed at me.
A lot of LGBT+ resources online are not set out in a way that people with visual or learning disabilities can easily read, or read at all.
The LGBT+ community as a whole (not just the disabled members) need to make a conscious effort to include disabled people where-ever and whenever possible.
We are just as much a part of the community as abled body/minded people.
This is 100% okay for able body/minded people to reblog too.
