#UndressingDisability and #EndTheAwkward Exhibition at The Gherkin



 The #UndressingDisability and #EndTheAwkward exhibition took place on Thursday night at The Gherkin, and let me tell you, it was an awesome night. Above is the Enhance the UK team (that's me on the right looking like an idiot), and what a lovely bunch of people they are. I've only ever spoken to Jennie Williams, the CEO via email or telephone so it was lovely to meet her, as well as Kelly and Emily, who have become good Twitter friends.

I wrote a post back in May about my involvement with ETUK and you can read all about that here. I wrote a chapter in the book Undressing Disability, which will be available on Amazon on two weeks, it'd mean the world to me if you get your hands on it. My story is about my relationship with my ex-boyfriend and how he reacted to my health declining, it's quite sad but there's a few funny little anecdotes to lighten the mood. There's more about ETUK and why I got involved on their blog, which I also write for, I like to get about a bit.

Thursday displayed the images of the gorgeous, brave disabled people baring all for the campaign, a film about disability and sex was shown, along with Scope's film for #EndTheAwkward. It was all amazing, I had a fabulous night.

Here's some pics. I hope you enjoy.

It was such an incredible night and I'm so proud to be part of these great campaigns. 

Disabled people have sex, get over it.
