Fading Scars distills 40 years of activism in disability, queer, parenting communities. Funny and engaging, Corbett pulls the curtains back on the humor and pathos of living as a disabled queer in a world that doesn’t welcome either with open arms.
Beloved by students, Fading Scars: My Queer Disability History is often their first introduction to disability histories and communities. University professors include it in curriculums throughout the English-speaking world. Fading Scars was selected as one of 5 Must Read books on women. A huge honor to be on this list.
