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.

Q is a multi-disciplinary artist living, learning, and dying on the traditional, ancestral, unceded Coast Salish territories of the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, and Squamish peoples. Among many notable performances, collaborations, and features, they have opened at Verses Festival of Words for The Body Is Not An Apology; co-written and performed with the frank theatre and Telling It Bent; collaborated with an aerial/trapeze artist for a circus cabaret; and co-headlined a curated show with Mitcholos Touchie. Q's work centres disability justice, crip activism, sex work, and queer liberation - along with all that meets at such topics' intersection - and is a self-proclaimed survivor, failure, and begin-againer.

You can find Q on their Facebook, Actual Cryptid Q (store and Facebook), and Tumblr
