    Hi everyone! Monday’s “31 Days of SMA” post was close to my heart, as it spoke to intersectionality. Intersectionality refers to the complex overlap of different identities, particularly with regards to discrimination. In Monday’s post, Hugo Trevino discussed his identity as a gay, disabled, Mexican American male with an M.A. in Education.

    Intersectionality has been integral in my own journey toward self-acceptance, so I enjoyed reading Hugo’s thoughts on the concept. Like he says, “If we continue to see Disability as an identity, we can get a greater understanding of how people with disabilities want to be part of the fabric of society. Our voice is getting louder and our viewpoints are changing society for the better.”

    Have you heard of intersectionality before? How does it affect your understanding of disability?
