Qudsiya on disability visibility on TikTok, voting access, and home-based care
When I started my podcast, one of the aspects I was most nervous about was using social media to promote it. I had never used Twitter or Instagram, and I had a very small personal network on Facebook. I generally find the social media universe to be a scary place, where you never know how your point of view will be received. This article offers a positive perspective on how social media can amplify the voices of people who would otherwise go unheard, and create networks of solidarity that wouldn’t have otherwise existed. I’m really heartened by the work these young people are doing, and the valuable education they are offering to all of us about disability, empathy, and embracing difference.
