BTGALA Spring Lecture featuring Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha on Disability Justice & Queer/Trans Liberation
A part of the BTGALA annual lecture series, this program will explore and interrogate the intersections of disability justice and queer and trans liberation. We will examine how centering disability justice in the work to organize around a/gender and a/sexuality is integral to the liberation of all. Copies of Leah’s books will be available for purchase from Labyrinth Bookstore at the event.
