DISABILITY FEST- 1st July to the 31st

my contribution to Disability Fest

So last year Disability Fest began on tumblr running for the whole of JULY as a way of celebrating disabled characters in media, This year it's back and I think it is super important. On this blog I have already talked about some of the bits of my disability (here).

I hope everyone supports and contributes to the event guys. It's always great to see good portrayals of disabled characters.

So this month most posts will be disability related. Maybe not every single one but Wierdo Wednesdays, Short Film Fridays and others will certainly be included. Specifically for this occasion i have made another fotor collage because we all know how much I love making those.
