July is Disability Pride Month!

There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle, because we do not live single-issue lives. An estimated 3-5 Million LGBTQ people have disabilities. 2 in 5 transgender people have a disability. 1 in 4 LGB people have a disability.

As we strive to uplift and empower all oppressed communities, recognizing the complex nature of intersectionality and forging inclusive spaces becomes imperative.

Created in 2019 by Ann Magill, the Disability Pride Flag's multi-colored stripes represent various forms of disability.

 Green: deafness, blindness, and other sensory disabilities.

 Blue: psychiatric disabilities and mental illness.

 White: non-apparent, invisible, and undiagnosed disabilities.

 Gold: neurodivergence and cognitive and intellectual disabilities.

 Red: physical disabilities.

These color categories are not conclusive nor mutually exclusive. They serve as a starting point, acknowledging that disability exists on a spectrum of both distinct and interconnected experiences. The Disability Pride Flag is a tribute to the diversity across the disability community and a reminder of what unites us.
