Organisé par : 

The Centre for Gender Advocacy

Ever been enjoying yourself on a hot date when your date begins asking questions about your medical condition? Ever been alone on a Friday night because there are too many barriers placed in your path like stairs into bars, lack of sign-language at shows, or lack of access to an appropriate washroom? People with disabilities/ diverse ways of being are fetishized, stigmatized, at higher risk of abuse, and often excluded when it comes to intimate relationships. Accessibilize Montreal invites you to explore all that feeds into this such as ideas of normal and abnormal, misogyny, and narrow visions of gender and sexuality. Let’s talk gender, accessibility, and sex! This will be an open discussion facilitated by Aimee Louw, who will be joined by other members of Accessibilize Montreal. All are welcome!

Aimee Louw is a Montreal-based writer, media maker and activist who has just published a zine called Underwater City I: Searching for the Most Accessible City in Canada. She produces radio programs covering stories of Indigenous resistance, gender, and disability justice for community stations across the country, and cohosts Native Solidarity News on CKUT radio. Aimee is a member of Accessibilize Montreal, and enjoys facilitating respectful discussions around hot and prickly subjects. Check out her website at www.underwatercity.ca.
