Join Guest Facilitator Diego Mariscal To Talk About Disability And the LGBT Community!

We all gain weight between Thanksgiving and Christmas–even if you try to pretend it’s not there, data doesn’t lie and the odds are your skinny jeans wont fit the same. Yet you still post your six pack beach body picture in your Grindr profile. But what if you couldn’t hide your “imperfections”? What if they were a intrinsic part of who you are?Just one in every ten people have ever been on a date or asked out a disabled person. Why do you think this is? As gay men, are we supportive or judgmental towards disability? This discussion will be hosted by guest facilitator Diego Mariscal starting at 8:30 on Friday, December 4. It will focus on the intersection between homosexuality and disability and the relationship between the two identities.
Gay District meets at The DC Center, located inside the Reeves building at 2000 14th Street NW Washington, DC 20009.  Attendees will need to enter the Reeves building via the “Exit” doors on 14th Street, facing McDonald’s. We encourage attendees to bring their photo ID to gain access inside the building. If you do not have or are unable to present a photo ID, please contact the DC Center at (202) 682-2245. Afterwards, we’ll head out to one of the fine establishments on the U Street Corridor.
