Frameline Talk: My Disability Isn't Your Oscar

SECTION: Frameline Talks | Free | Streaming

Disability representation in media and film is changing and frankly, it’s about time! Representing disability onscreen is no longer a vehicle for scene-chewing acting and poignant messages. The future of disability onscreen is the representation of the whole person and authentic experience including sexual identity. This discussion centers disability representation in queer media featuring creatives and producers on the forefront of prioritizing authenticity of experience.

MODERATOR: Catherine Kudlick, director of the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University

  • Alex Locust (aka Glamputee), disability justice activist
  • Karen Nakamura, author, The Disability of the Soul
  • James Quedado, actor, Under One Roof

The Frameline Talks series is supported by Variety.
