Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice

By Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha

In their new, long-awaited collection of essays, Lambda Literary Award-winning writer and longtime disability justice activist and performance artist Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha explores the politics and realities of disability justice, a movement that centres the lives and leadership of sick and disabled queer, trans, Black, and brown people, with knowledge and gifts for all.  Leah writes passionately and personally about creating spaces by and for sick and disabled queer people of colour, and creative "collective access" - access not as a chore but as a collective responsibility and pleasure - in our communities and political movements.  Bringing their survival skills and knowledge from years of cultural and activist work, Piepzna-Samarasinha explores everything from the economics of queer femme emotional labour, to suicide in queer and trans communities, to the nitty-gritty of touring as a sick and disabled queer artist of colour.

Care Work is a mapping of access as radical love, a celebration of the work that sick and disabled queer/people of colour are doing to find each other and to build power and community, and a toolkit for everyone who wants to build radically resilient, sustainable communities of liberation where no one is left behind.  Powerful and passionate, Care Work is a crucial and necessary call to arms.
