This week’s #CPChatNow focus chat focused on “Having a Disability and Dating/Being a Part of the LGBTQ+ Community”! I am #CPChatNow interim co-host Devin Axtman, and I will be the conductor on this week’s recap of our Twitter chat.
#CPChatNow community member, Yasmin, led the chat from the UK! We thank Yasmin for her efforts and for openly sharing her experiences.
Yasmin sparked the chat’s dialogue by disclosing that she identifies as asexual and how she learned about the term.
Yasmin also disclosed that she identifies as Aromanitc.
Yasmin reported her identity was a gradual process that took awhile to sink in.
Yasmin really sparked the conversation with common misconceptions around those who identify as asexual.
#CPChatNow member Jen talked about how she feels misconceptions of the disability community and dating start.
Finally, #CPChatNow members Alena and Erin talked about their climbing and skiing skills!
Thank you for riding along with me during this recap. Now for our extend-the-conversation question:
What are some misconceptions surrounding the disability community and dating? Please share in the comments!
