Andrew Gurza is back and it’s his birthday (happy birthday, Andrew!). He talks with us about his viral hashtag, #DiabledPeopleAreHot, and how it became a worldwide movement. Andrew also tells us how his relationship with his mother changed when he told her that he hires sex workers regularly. We discuss why the concept of enthusiastic consent is ableist, how we can all better combat our personal “isms” and learn to be better allies, plus the harsh realities of dating when you’re disabled.
Andrew Gurza is a Disability Awareness Consultant and Cripple Content Creator whose written work has been featured in Daily Xtra, Gay Times UK, Huffington Post, The Advocate, Everyday Feminism, Mashable, and Out.com, and several anthologies. He has guested on a number of podcasts including Dan Savage’s Savage Love and Cameron Esposito’s Queery. He has spoken all over the world at conferences on topics like sex, disability and what it means to be a Queer Cripple. He is also the host of the DisabilityAfterDark: The Podcast Shining a Bright Light on Sex and Disability available on all podcast platforms. You can follow the podcast @disaftdarkpod.
