Disability Perspectives in Kink Panel Discussion with Lizzie

June 4 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

$5 – $10

Class Description

This panel on disability perspectives in kink has the purpose of fostering understanding, inclusivity, and empowerment within the kink community. By providing a platform for dialogue, education, and sharing of experiences, we are aiming to dismantle stigmas, address misconceptions, and advocate for the rights and needs of individuals with disabilities in kinky spaces. Through discussions on accessibility, consent, adaptation, and pleasure, we hope these kinds of panels promote a more inclusive and supportive environment where everyone can explore and express their desires authentically, regardless of ability.

We are putting a call out to the community for panelists. We are looking for 4-5 panelists who can speak to their experiences at the intersections of disability and kink. If you are interested in being a panelist, please apply here (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSegAc50iBlg9M9gQ_xcjgSt4fzofNUX1ycuA2K1ALeCwrusRA/viewform?usp=sf_link). The deadline for submissions is Friday, May 24 at 11:59 pm EDT.

This panel discussion will not encompass all disabilities and experiences, but is meant to help some folks start a dialogue and consider how going forward we can collectively normalize these conversations.

To better accommodate attendees and participants with a variety of disabilities, we are asking that attendees wear masks. Panelists will be at least 10 feet away from the audience and may choose whether or not to wear masks to accommodate those deaf/hard of hearing.

Presenter Bio

@Skeleton_Bitch (they/he/she), aka Lizzie, aka Picasso of Pain, is a disabled, genderfluid dominant/sadist/artist and one of the hosts of the monthly queer-centered play party, @qinkdc. They have been participating in kink since 2006 and part of the DMV kink community since 2022.
