A couple of weeks ago, I was approached by a television production company, asking me to take part in a dating show. A dating show where those with disabilities and deformities are filmed trying to 'find love.' They thought that I would be a good fit, given that I have a deformity myself.
I have a lot of thoughts on this. Angry ones. Frustrated ones. Thoughts about misrepresentation in the media, about exploitation and about control of voice.
I made a video addressing all of my issues with this show and the people who produce it. I would be very grateful if you could take the time to watch it, and share it. I think more people need to be aware of how these companies operate. You can watch the video here.
Thank you. Sending lots of love to you all,
