Disabled Writers is a resource to help editors connect with disabled writers and journalists, and journalists connect with disabled sources. Our goal is specifically to promote paid opportunities for multiply marginalized members of the disability community, and to encourage editors and journalists to think of disabled people for stories that stretch beyond disability issues.

Hablo Rodríguez-Williams is an unapologetic, Brown, genderqueer artist, poet, freelance writer, author, scholar, disability rights organizer, native, herbal healer and social critic. As a shape shifting, self proclaimed, "Sadboi", Hablo's werk centers a decolonial lens around Queer and Trans POWER and disability.

Hablo's work emphasizes everything unapologetically feminine and the ever queering of the word "femme". Hablo's spoken word shines light on the often overlooked, "gritty", parts of queerness, decolonialism and disability.

Through their own multiplicities and intersectionalities of their existence; as a first generation Colombian and Indigenous disabled person, Hablo's capacity for story telling allows for them to be instrumental to a cultural movement and narrative of resistance.

With articles featured in the HuffPost and Rooted in Rights, Hablo's work focuses on radical social justice issues, Queer and Trans People of Color issues, Disability, sexuality and more.
