Charis Hill, "A Typical Divergent: Navigating Life in an Exclusionary World" Broome Library Autism Awareness Month lecture
Identity impacts every decision and opportunity, especially for marginalized identity groups. In a world seeking to be more inclusive, multiply-marginalized people face the decision of whether to “come out” daily, during every interaction, as they navigate a world trying to be more inclusive. This lecture discusses the lived reality of claiming identity in the context of a world that often silos labels, and how systemic oppression is exactly the force that requires disclosure: whether to claim invisible identities with pride, shame, or at all.
