In this episode, I review 2018's Best Picture Winner "The Shape of Water". I talk a lot about the ableism in the film, and how the central character (played by a non-disabled actress... ugh) shouldn't necessarily fall in love with a fish man. I share some of my many issues with the film, as well as a few things I could relate to in love that I saw in this. I also share some reviews from disabled people who highlight just how ableist this romance between a deaf woman and a fish man actually is.
This episode is all about my feelings about Pride when you are disabled. I share some of my experiences in Prides in 2018, and my issues with the organizational exclusion of disability by Pride orgs. I focus in on Pride Toronto and how we can do better. I also talk about some super ableist incidents that happened to disabled people during pride including Stonewall and Flaming Saddles Weho in LA. I also coin the term "bahcumbug" in this episode.
Wow, it's our 20th disaftdark minisode! In this minisode, I get an e-mail from Jessica, who tells us all about their experiencing dating with a disability; whether they are gay or straight, and their comfortability in simply being alone and feeling complete. It was an awesomely long e-mail, but it resonated with me, and I hope you enjoy!

Episode 092 - Entertainment Tonight Made Me Gay; Which Celebs I Think Aren’t Ableist (and who I wanna fuck)
In this episode, I share with you that I love pop culture and celebrities along with sex and disability, so I combined these two loves. I talk about the celebs that I think wouldn't be super ableist (and some who might be a little ableist), and who I'd like to fuck. This one was so fun to do... Enjoy!
In this episode, I talk about some of the times that I have been in photo shoots. I share 3 stories about what taking sexy photos as a disabled person is like. I talk about how disabled photography may be viewed by non-disabled people, sex and disability in photos, and more. Enjoy!
I have added photos to the Facebook Group for this episode. Like us at Facebook.com/disabilityafterdark
In episode 090, I talk with my friend (and new research assistant for the show), Rae. We talk about their upbringing in Ireland as both queer and disabled, working on their gender identity journey as a disabled person, religion, disability, and sex, flirting with low vision and so much more. This was a great interview and I hope you enjoy it!
