Intersectionality: Queerness and Disability in Medicine Discussion Group

June 23, 2021 | 11:00am - 12:00pm

Register to participate in the upcoming discussion group that Stanford Medical Abilities Coalition (SMAC) is launching in partnership with Lane Library, co-hosted with the Pride and Allies ERG

Discrimination can intensify when an individual faces multiple, simultaneous biases. Intersectionality, the complex, cumulative way in which the effects of multiple forms of discrimination (such as racism, sexism, and classism) combine, overlap, or intersect especially in the experiences of marginalized individuals or groups is a helpful lens to examine this experience.

The Intersectionality: Queerness and Disability in Medicine meeting will focus on The Intersection of Disability and LGBTQ+ topics relating to science and medicine. The discussion will be led by Dr. Alan Martino, an instructor in Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies in the Community Health Sciences Department at the University of Calgary. Dr. Martino’s doctoral research examined the romantic and sexual lives of adults with intellectual disabilities.
