Sophie Poost on “The Privilege of Passing: Always Proud but Tired of Being Loud”
October 6 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Through the use of storytelling, this presentation will address common myths about bisexuality and disability while addressing passing privilege from a disabled and queer perspective. Poost will take the audience through her journey of self-identifying, coming out (and coming out, and coming out) and ongoing acceptance as she elaborates on the battle against systemic and internalized ableism and biphobia. She invites others to join her in questioning their preconceived notions of identity expression and community acceptance. Poost is a Programs Coordinator at the American Association of People with Disabilities and a volunteer with the Disability EmpowHer Network. Hosted by the WSU Access Center and the Disabled Students and Allies Club.
