In this episode, I interviewed one of the sexiest people I have ever had the pleasure of talking to on the show. My friend Addison (a go-go dancing smoke show of hotness from Vancouver) sat down with me to talk about the connections between HIV-positive status and disability, and I was pleasantly surprised that he really considered the question, and asked his community what they thought. Our conversation is light and fun, but also touches on the fact that the disabled and poz communities have one big thing in common: we both face stigma and we need to work together to change that.
In this episode, I talk about my experience on a Canadian TV show called 1Girl5Gays on MTV Canada and Logo from 2013-14 in the shows 5th season. I was the only visibly disabled person on that program, and I talk about what that meant for me and disabled representation on Queer TV.
Here's a link to hilarious photos of me on the show and my show bio
In this episode, I talk with JoEllen Notte; well known researcher, mental health advocate and writer about the linkages between sex, depression and disability. We talk about how she manages her depression, whether or not she believes depression is a disability, and so much more.

This was a tough episode to record. In light of all the sexual assault stories coming out, I felt it was necessary to talk about how disabled people deal with consent, sexual harassment and sexual assault. In this episode, I share some moments of things that happened to me. It wasn't easy sharing this stuff, but I felt it was important. This isn't an episode you should enjoy, but you should give pause and think. There will be another episode about this with a panel of other disabled people discussing consent soon enough.
In this episode, I talk about what it has been like for me working in the industry as a queer cripple, and what that has meant for me. We talk about the beginnings of my writings, professional ableism as a Queer Cripple, I share the pitfalls of being a profesional Queer Cripple speaker and more.
This episode is a hilarious re-telling of my first (and hopefully not last) threesome as a Queer Cripple. I share what I wanted the threesome to be, the reality of it, and what I learned from it for my next one. Throughout the story, I touch on internalized ableism, sexual ableism, some funny moments and more. Enjoy!
In this episode, I sit down with Queerty contributor Josh Galassi. He writes a lot about his experiences being queer and disabled. We chat about coming out as disabled on apps, privilege, asking your lovers what they thought of you and your disability, and so much more.
In this episode, I take a look at sex, disability and the law. We talk briefly about The Ugly Laws, Eugenics, and discuss two cases that examine consent, sex, disability and the law. Through these cases I explore how the courts and our legal systems have a lot of work to do in understanding disability, and suggest perhaps that the courts would rather rely on ableist prejudices than looking at things further.
In this episode, I talk candidly about my relationship to porn as a queer cripple, and how I came to learn about it in my youth. In this first part of a miniseries I am calling "PwD: Porn While Disabled", I share why I think disability and porn are totally important, potentially problematic, and uncover why I myself might want to embark in the industry.
In this episode, I chat with "Dating Coach on Wheels" [www.datingcoachonwheels.com], Amin Lakhani about his experiences with sex, disability, tight clothes, jerking off, bow ties and muscular dystrophy. This is definitely one of my fave episodes so far! Enjoy!
