As Pride is happening all around us now and throughout the month of June, I thought I'd share a few links with folks that I just found; which might be of interest to some. :)  (Ones which I wish I'd found eeeeeons ago- as a little bi blind girl. ;))  

For many, it's hard enough to find decent disability resources- if any at all; depending on where one lives.  For many others, the same goes for GLBT-Q-related resources.  But put those two together, and most might think that finding any assistance w/pertinent issues would be a virtual impossibility.  I know I sure did- up until last night. :)  So for those who might be in a similar situation, that's why I'm sharing this with you.  If you or someone you know could use this info, pass it on! :D

For those who are blind or visually impaired and part of the GLBT-Q community, there's http://www.blind-lgbt-pride.org, a division of the ACB.
For folks with all types of disabilities in the UK and beyond, there's http://www.regard.org.uk, They offer free membership for disabled folks in the GLBT-Q community.  
Plus there's a great, GLBT-Q inclusive online magazine, full of info for people of all kinds of abilities.  It offers stuff about everything from entertainment to finding work. :)  http://www.disabilitynow.org.uk -f
 

Annnd that's all I have for now, but if I find more, you can bet they'll be posted here as well. :)
Hope you are all well, and Happy Pride, y'all!
