Hey Type 1s and Nones! National Diabetes Awareness Month is winding down but before it ends I wanted to feature another community within our own Diabetes community and as you might have guessed it’s the Queer Type 1 Community! To do that this week I have on Greta and Amrei to discuss how Type 1 and Queer identity can intersect, the parallels between the two experiences, and the importance of language when talking about them. Greta tells us about what came about from her search for Queer Type 1s like herself online and Amrei asks about Greta’s experiences being a double minority.

I'm Walt and I've been living with my Type 1 Diabetes ever since June of 2000. I've spent most of the past two decades trying to ignore my condition with less than stellar results. But now I'm making up for lost time and doing my part to spread awareness the only way a millennial can these days: through a podcast! Join me and other Type 1s as we try to teach the Non-Type 1s in their lives what this whole T1DLyfe is all about. View all posts by askmeaboutmytype1
