Thanks for your support during July – it was a big month! It was Disability Pride Month; I was involved in some big events; I was quite sick; and I went away to NSW and QLD for work. Your lovely comments, which genuinely show appreciation and excitement for my work and life, means a lot.
I made myself smaller online for a while there, but my confidence is coming back. It feels good. I’ve created a lot of new content – and I know it’s been useful for you!
One friend told me their young relative is doing a school assignment about me! Another said my work has helped them eliminate ableist language from their vocab. I was recently a sensitivity reader for a book written by one of my teenage idols-turned friend! Wow!
There are a few ways you can support me:
You can book me to speak at your work or school – use the contact form to get in touch.
You can share my social media and blog posts. And you can buy me a drink if my work has helped you, or if you’re using it in your work. There’s PayPal and Patreon links here. Thank you!
This pic was taken at the start of the month, just before I hosted an event at the State Library. It feels incredible to be doing so much meaningful and enjoyable work right now. Grateful.
