The intersection of sexuality and the body is at the heart of a new collection of written works titled QDA: A Queer Disability Anthology. Through poetry, fiction, nonfiction and comics, 48 writers from around the globe explore their experiences as members of the LGBTQ and disabled communities. Two such contributors are John Killacky (pictured), executive director of the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, who lives with diminished feeling and motor skills resulting from a spinal surgery, and his husband, Larry Connolly, a writing professor at Champlain College. Killacky and Connolly convene at Phoenix Books Burlington for an in-depth discussion of the anthology in which writers reveal both strengths and vulnerabilities in existing with multiple social identities.
