Reflecting an unprecedented development in the disabled and sexual minority communities, this book describes the founding, achievements, and history of a unique group providing support for GLBT people with developmental disabilities or mental retardation. In this pathbreaking book, group founder John D. Allen describes the Rainbow Support Group's beginnings in 1998 at the New Haven Gay & Lesbian Community Center in Connecticut and the ways in which it has been shattering the myths and stereotypes surrounding people with mental retardation ever since.
