I want to celebrate LGBTQIA+ inclusion, diversity & expansion with children - How can I do this?


Sara is a solo parent and a wheelchair and Stroke Warrior advocate. In a past life they were a Disability Support Worker. This piece, 'Non-Binary', is among the first offerings that come from Sara's left hand. You see, Sara was right handed up until a stroke 3 years ago. From when they first picked up a pencil in rehab they haven’t stopped drawing. Being a trained painter/drawer Sara just knew that they *HAD* to get their skills back. Sara had lost the use of their right hand, their dominant hand, but was determined to get full use out of their left hand! Sara has achieved so much in those 3 years and is excited to share some of their artistic journey.

The image made me wonder "What if we read Bell Hooks instead of Disney? What if we learnt about LGBTQIA+ (my) culture? How things may have been different for me growing up... What if we learnt about love and inclusivity? What if we learnt to celebrate difference instead of fearing it? And then I realized, I may have missed out on these integral lessons of love and inclusivity as a child, but it's never too late to learn and unlearn. Granted, being a member of the rainbow family forces us to unlearn so much in order to find and accept
