Passing Twice: LGBTQ+ People Who Stutter
Billy Collins (Sheraton 5)
This workshop is an open discussion exploring the experiences of LGBTQ+ people who stutter. There are many parallels common to the LGBTQ+ and Stuttering communities, including passing as nonLGBTQ+ or fluent, coming out or disclosure, hiding in the closet or being covert, and other aspects of being a non-visible minority. While the discussions are about identifying as both LGBTQ+ and a PWS, the workshop is open to everyone regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
