Sharing what disability feels like.

As a Disability Awareness Consultant, I want to touch on the lived experience of disability, and what that actually feels like.  I want to understand and explore what disability means.  What access/accessibility really means.   I want us to talk about disability in a way that is honest, that doesn’t shy away from the tough stuff - the realities of the disabled experience that are so often sugar-coated.   Well, not here.  

I will use my lived experience as a disabled man, wheelchair user and Cripple Content Creator to open up the narrative of disability and touch on parts of that experience that we don’t talk about enough.  I want to use my knowledge, share my stories and make you take a long look at disability from a whole new perspective.

What happens when discipline comes in conflict with desire? What does an able-bodied gay man loving a gay disabled man look like? And will there ever be a time when that appearance doesn’t matter—when it’s ordinary, accepted, equal?
