8 disabled influencers from different ethnic minority groups – Social media is very influential. Everyone deserves representation, especially people from different ethnic minorities as well as people living with disabilities because society still has so much stigma and certain negative thoughts about them. Social media helps them promote a positive and encouraging message to the world at large. Our writer, Tracy Williams, shares 8 disabled influencers from different ethnic minorities from the world of literature, entertainment, comedy, fashion, public speaking and activism.

The True Colors Festival (TCF) is a long-running international festival of performing arts that celebrates diversity and inclusion and embraces the fact that we are ‘One World, One Family’. This years festival, hosted in Tokyo, includes a whole plethora of acts, including pop-sensation Katy Perry and Japan’s very own Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. Here at Disability Horizons, we have been lucky enough to speak to a few of the disabled performers taking part.

Sophie Morgan recently worked with Channel 4’s Dispatches to uncover the truth behind domestic violence in the homes of disabled people. It revealed a shocking statistic: disabled people are twice as likely to suffer domestic abuse than those without disabilities. If you have experienced domestic abuse as a disabled person, we would like for you to share your story. All stories will be treated with confidentiality and care, and you can submit your experiences anonymously. If you feel confident to share your story with us, please email Raya@disabilityhorizons.com
