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.
