Auto-archaeology is an emerging form of autoethnography exploring individuals’ artifacts as supporting evidence to interpret experiences explored using autoethnographic methodologies. Using multiple voices, this essay draws upon the data of photos and poetry from my past and lived experiences to interrogate complex intersections of disability, gender, and queerness. This approach contributes to emergent literature examining intersections of queer and disabled identities while using an intersectional lens to examine how privileged identities intersect with Femme/disabled identities. Finally, it considers balancing the ongoing performance of identities with needing to feel recognized, discussing ways to create space for intersections of invisible identities.
