This post is my contribution to Blogging Against Disablism Day 2011 (BADD 2011).
I am probably going to get hell for writing about this but anyway, here it goes…
A few weeks ago, I attended a workshop on the sexual rights of people with disabilities. This workshop was part of the Disability and Citizenship Week (Semaine Citoyenneté et Handicap) at l’Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), a major university in the province of Quebec. It was the first time in a long time that I had heard of an event that broached this subject in my part of the world. I had two conflicting thoughts when I heard about it:
- Hmmm, how come we still need to talk about this in 2011? and;
- Well, this should be a change from the usual stuff I hear about (like accessibility, HTML5, blablabla).
