Abstract

The current study explores the effects of fragmentation and femmephobia on femme femme-identified disabled members of the LGTBQ community. This study utilized Hoskins's critical femme theory along with Goffman's theory of stigma as basic theoretical frameworks. I employed a qualitative method of inquiry and found high levels of fragmentation, femmephobia, and stigma in my research subjects. Further, I found signs of a possible connection between LGTBQ identity and autism. Additionally, I found reports of a lack of accommodations and the late diagnosis of disability.
