The Disabilities issue of Archer Magazine features articles exploring the impact of COVID-19 on people with disabilities, experiences of medical racism, trauma recovery through sex work and kink, and the future of disability justice.
Sex. Gender. Identity.
“It has been thrilling to commission writing about sex, sexuality and gender and its intersections with disabilities, Deafness, mental illness and neurodivergence. The mainstream world often stigmatises and judges those of us who are different, while Archer Magazine makes space for nuance, complexity, curiosity and a celebration of difference.” — Roz Bellamy, editor-in-chief, Archer Magazine #16
