I, as a gay man, having experienced opposition from both within and outside my family, have discovered an affinity with the differently abled. Given that the histories of the gay and disabled communities mirror each other in some ways, this essay will compare the efforts of activists from both groups and explore the experiences of those at the intersection of the two populations.
