Disability & queerness

For the first round of Disabled And Here, we called on queer disabled BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) in the area to take part as (paid) stock photo models and interviewees.

Why #DisabledAndHere?

What comes to mind when you think of disability & chronic illness? Media portrayals of disability tend to be homogenous and one-dimensional, focusing primarily on children & elderly folk who all happen to be white and framed either through the lens of pity or inspiration porn.

Disabled And Here is a reclaiming of our depiction, featuring disabled BIPOC with different diagnoses (or lack thereof), body sizes/types, sexual orientations, and gender identities who reside in the Pacific Northwest. This is disability representation from our own community.
