Queer and disabled; a no-holes barred conversationThere is no doubt that being gay presents its own difficulties and challenges. Gay men face all kinds of stigma, fear coming out, and want to explore their sexual fantasies. Now, imagine that you are gay and have a physical disability. It just got much, much harder, right? Acceptance and tolerance is what the LGBT community preaches and it’s time to learn, debate, and join the movement on expanding your own understanding of the sexual lives, desires, and stigma queer and disabled people face.

On Monday, February 29, the Health Initiative for Men (HIM) brings an Avant-guard event to Vancouver, to discuss and debate the topic in a fund and social environment. Special guest speaker, Andrew Gurza, has a passion for making disability accessible to everyone. As a sex positive gay man, Andrew talks openly and related first-hand about the challenges and struggles he has personally faced. He can shed the light on things not considered when it comes to getting laid.

Attendance is by donation with proceeds going to Deliciously Disabled. The no- holes barred, and expansive conversation will take place from 7:00-9:00pm at the Scotiabank Dance Centre.
