Issue Number 3, Taking Space, is an international open call for those who identify as lesbian and disabled and/or are living with a physical, sensory, cognitive, or chronic illness. Guest editor: Zee Monteiro.
WMN believes in representing sectors of the lesbian community that are not always given the visibility they deserve. We want to support disabled artists and writers as we feel the discourse around disabilities, and representation of, is lacking particularly within the art world and the lesbian community. Since intersectionality is at the crux of everything, Taking Space is a creative space that illuminates the intersection of disabilities and lesbianism’s inevitable overlap. It is important to provide this platform in order to unlearn, listen, and support the visibility, experience and talent of disabled lesbian artists.
