Summit 2019: Queering Healthcare Access and Accessibility


We are delighted to announce Andrew Gurza as the first of our 4 Keynote Speakers for Summit 2019!

Andrew Gurza is a Disability Awareness Consultant and Cripple Content Creator whose written work has been featured on national and international media outlets such as CBC, Huffington Post, and The Advocate. He is also the host of the award-nominated podcast “Disability After Dark” and has gained international recognition for his movement and viral hashtag #DisabledPeopleAreHot
His presentation will give you the opportunity to understand how issues of inaccessibility, ableism, prejudice and access shape the experience of being queer and disabled. By using his personal experience, he provides audiences with the tools to confront their own views around sex, disability and queerness as well as help queer disabled people feel part of the LGBTQ+ community. You can read more about him on our site.
