Using Our Voice Makes It Stronger
Disabled voices are just like regular voices, just like anybody. Using our voice makes it stronger, and it's doubly true for disabled people who've been disenfranchised, and hidden away, and censored. I think that's what I was getting at about being an artist. It feels like censorship, to be rendered invisible. I think it's a particular experience to go from being able-bodied and normal to being outside the norm, not pictured or represented, to have yourself kind of … I felt myself being erased and my viewpoint being hidden away, and I felt it live as it happened.
