Description

The disabled body and mind manifest gender identity, sex, and sexuality similarly to those without disabilities. Yet, the media, which is bereft with inaccuracies about disability, fails to accurately reflect this. From asexuality to hypersexuality, we’ll explore how film, television, and new media represent disabled sex, sexuality, and gender.
