We hope that this blog can provide relatable information, ample resources and tangible support to our greater disabled-queer community (and their support people) as they traverse the sometimes rocky, confusing, and exhausting path towards securing stable income through government assistance programs. From personal stories, to logistical play-by-plays of the SSI/SSDI application process, to tips on how to handle doctors, we aim to speak to the mind + the heart + all the parts in between, to guide and encourage and enable folks to keep on with the good fight. Why? Cause we want more of YOU (US) to thrive! We need our disabled queer family to bring their gifts to the world (wherever within or without capitalism that falls), and sometimes, that means getting financial help from the government to meet our basic (and rightful!) needs.
