Homosexuality, Bisexuality and Disability

Like the general population, people with disabilities vary in their sexual preferences. People with disabilities who are gay or bisexual often face social and emotional challenges from both sides of the fence, and may need to look to each other for information and support. These sites can help.

 

Bent: A Journal of CripGay Voices
This webzine for “cripgay men” features first-person articles, fiction, poetry, art, personals, and more. It’s done with class, though the quality varies. Pay a visit and “get bent.”
Deaf Queer Resource Center
“A national non-profit resource and information center founded and directed by Deaf Queer activist Dragonsani Renteria,” the Deaf Queer Resource Center website includes an IRC Channel, directory, personal home pages, photos, an online “cafe,” and a members-only “People” section. The organization is a bit difficult to follow; check the site map for buried treasuries, ranging from “Frequently Asked Questions” to “Deaf Leather Resources.”
