Accessibility & inclusion is more than just a checklist. How can all of us do better at advocating alongside, & practicing allyship with, LGBTIQ+ people with disabilities? Join Jax & Jess from queerspace for an interactive Zoom meeting on how to create accessible & inclusive services.
In this 2 hour online training event Jax & Jess will share training videos featuring LGBTIQ+ people with disabilities & tip sheets co-designed by LGBTIQ+ people with disabilities & disability advocacy organisations which provide best practice examples & highlight the value of lived experience.
Online activities will give participants the tools to think through what access & inclusion looks like for LGBTIQ+ people with disabilities & how you can take steps to achieve it!
