Disability culture has always existed. Now more than ever it is important that we celebrate ourselves for the complex and diverse community that we are. That is why this week I’m recommending the Disability Visibility Project.
Created by disability rights leader Alice Wong, the Disability Visibility Project is a blog and a podcast. Wong wanted to record the stories of people with disabilities as a means of protecting our history. The podcast is ongoing and so far includes 74 episodes covering topics which range from video gaming, poetry, immigration, intersectionality, design, violence, to entrepreneurship. Each episode is a frank and unflinching reflection of the experiences of the disability community.
The blog, found here contains posts by Wong, guest writers, and Q & A posts with people with disabilities who are engaged with culture at every level.
