"All bodies are unique and essential. All bodies are whole. All bodies have strengths and needs that must be met. We are powerful not despite the complexities of our bodies, but because of them.
All bodies are caught in the bindings of ability, race, class, gender, sexual orientation, sexuality, citizenship. We cannot separate them. This is where we struggle. We are powerful not despite the complexities of our identities, but because of them."
In honor of Pride Month we are showcasing a few amazing human beings with disabilities who are in the LGBTQAI community. This week we shine the spotlight on Sin Invalid, a performance project that develops and celebrates artists with disabilities, centralizing artists of color and queer and gender-variant artists. Their performances explore themes of sexuality, embodiment and the disabled body. The group was conceived and founded by disabled people of color and offer a vision of beauty and sexuality inclusive of all individuals and communities.
