Event description

Description

Historically, the potency of personal testimony emerged in the field of social justice in the late twentieth century, experience on the personal, ‘micro’ scale often shining a light on the dynamics at work in the societal or ‘macro scale’. In this event Sarah Stephenson-Hunter shares her personal journey as a trans woman living with a disability.

The concept of intersectionality originates with Kimberlé Crenshaw (1989) who reminds us that individuals have the potential to be intersected by multiple dimensions of identity which produce unique, powerful stories. So, responding to the theme of LGBT History Month 2019, Sarah will consider the ways in which peace, reconciliation and activism speak to her in her experience of being a trans woman living with a disability.
