Femmes et queers, la double peine

(Par contre je suis la seule gĂŞnĂ©e par la formulation « femmes de la communautĂ© LGBTQI+ » ? On dirait une formulation de Science Po Ă  base d’euphĂ©misme, dans la lignĂ©e de « handicapable » ou « personne issue de la diversitĂ© visible », alors que : « femmes trans, lesbiennes et bies+ » existe)
