At the Life Center for Independent Living (Life CIL) Annual Meeting, RespectAbility speaker Millie Gonzalez, M.A. discussed allyship at the intersection of disabled LGBTQ+ identities. Attendees learned how to become a better ally by centering the experiences and amplifying the voices of the world’s largest minority group—people with disabilities—while honoring their intersectional identities as members of the LGBTQ+ and other communities. Attendees explored meaningful actions they can take right now to cultivate inclusivity and build an organizational culture of equity where all people, including disabled LGBTQ+ folks and yourself, can be authentic and thrive.
