Event Location: 
The University of Iowa

1.     Public Workshop: "At the Intersections of Queerness & Disability"
What issues do disabled LGBTQ peoples face? What are the connections among ableism, homophobia, and transphobia? How do issues around queer disability identities fit into a broader intersectional social justice framework? Join Eli for a facilitated dialogue about these questions and more.
Time: 2:00 - 4:00pm
Location: Iowa City Public Library, Room A, 123 South Linn Street  Iowa City, IA 52240

2.     Performance and Reading: "Gawking, Gaping, Staring"
Disabled people, trans people, fat people, and people of color all know what it's like to be stared at. Through words and images, Eli explores the internal experiences of living in marked bodies and the external meanings of oppression and bodily difference.
Time: 7:00-8:30pm with a reception following speaking engagement from 8:30-10pm at WRAC (130 N. Madison St across from IMU).
