We talk about 'equality', but what does it really mean? And who is getting left behind? In this round table event, Amelia Abraham, lesbian-identified author, journalist and editor of the book We Can Do Better Than This, talks to leading activists about some of the LGBTQIA+ fights we hear less about. Canadian queer disability Andrew Gurza talks about fighting ableism, Berlin-based intersex campaigner Dani Coyle talks about the most important struggles in intersex rights, and asexual activist and model Yasmin Benoit discusses how we can improve asexual visibility.
