Event description: 

Yale’s Workplace Survey results revealed that a higher percentage of LGBTQ+ identified people also identify as disabled compared to the heterosexual majority.

This panel will focus on storytelling, skill-building, and the choice of disclosure, and is intended to highlight one area of intersectionality between the LGBTQ and DiversAbility at Yale Affinity Groups.

In celebration of National Coming Out Day (October 11), panelists will discuss their experiences of “coming out” either as LGBTQ+, as having a disability at Yale, or both.
