Disability Pride is a two-way street (or is it more like a freeway)?

A body map exploring Ainslee’s experiences of being disabled. A blank body with a wheelchair on one side with words and drawings on the body to signify those experiences.
Body map by Ainslee Hooper explores the complexities of her experience as a disabled person.
  • I am disabled by a society still learning to include people with disabilities at all levels and facets.
  • I am disabled by a system that fails to consider people with disabilities in natural and pandemic disaster plans and associated reporting.
  • I am disabled by a system that wants things to go back to how they were before the pandemic, removing some things that have made life as a disabled person more inclusive.
