It's telling that no one who sees the ribbon gracing my jacket knows what it means. It's a leftover from a few months ago, but I've decided to leave it on.
It's the ribbon for the International Day of People With Disabilities.
I'm writing about this, in this column, because there are plenty of people in the LGBTI community who live with the effects of disabilities, of one kind or another, every day of their lives (including me). They may or may not experience intersecting discrimination from outside — or within — our community, due to their disability.
