I am a social designer working with under-represented groups through service, activism, and imagination.
I frequently question what is normative when I navigate public and private service spaces. So much of design exists for the preferred majorities in everyday life.
Bodies who resist or do not fit into these established categories are frequently only seen as minorities or catalysts of diversity. I believe design is an inclusive method for civic and community services when used with justice and equity-based approaches.
I agree and follow the disability rights quote, nothing about us without us, and I try to implement this value when thinking about queer and feminist ways of designing.
