i’m 24, i’m a white nonbinary ace multiple system. i would like to find a more long-term safe place in montreal (preferably in the southwest) by the first of january. i’m looking for an apartment or room in a house with a couple other people. i’m very quiet and don’t take up much space in common areas, and feel it’s important to keep common spaces clean.
i’ve had a really hard time finding safe long-term living spaces because of my disabilities, and have been made homeless because of (often violent) disablism in the past, so it’s really important for me to live with people who are disabled and / or have an understanding of disability justice.
i’m autistic and hypersensitive and i have a seizure disorder, and i’m not able to spend a lot of time outside the house, so a quiet place where folks don’t smoke tobacco / burn incense inside, cook with a lot of spices, or use scented products would be ideal. i also smoke weed for chronic pain and would prefer a place where folks are okay with me doing that inside.
i have pretty low mobility and use a rollator to get around, so a first floor space or an elevator is necessary – a step or two is workable though. i have one cat, he’s 4 years old and neutered. he’s a sweetheart and mostly spends his time exploring the outdoors.
because of my disabilities, it’s not possible for me to do stuff involving heavy lifting or much walking, but i’d be happy to work out in advance with roommates what chores / regular tasks around the house that don’t involve those things make sense for me to do and stick to them.
i’m on a very small fixed income so i’m ideally looking for something $300/month or under including utilities / internet, $350 max.
ideally i would like to live with other trans / asexual / disabled / autistic folks, but it’s not necessarily a dealbreaker as long as we can have open conversations about what everyone needs.
