"I Just Want to Be Myself": Adolescents with Disabilities Who Identify as a Sexual or Gender Minority
Kahn, Laurie Gutmann; Lindstrom, Lauren
Educational Forum, v79 n4 p362-376 2015
Adolescents with disabilities who identify as a sexual or gender minority are at high risk for negative school experiences and poor outcomes, including peer rejection, bullying, and dropping out. Using an intersectionality framework, this study examined how multiple marginalized identities influence sense of self and school experience for this population. Findings reveal a complex picture of lived experiences and support the need for important changes in school practices.
