Q: Do you feel like you are represented in the media and just generally in the world around you?
Daniel: As a disabled gay man, I feel that there is very little representation for disabled people in the media and in society. I feel that more positive representation should come across for disabled people based on positive role models.
Q: What changes would you like to see in the queer community in the next 10-15 years?
Daniel: I’d like to see more allyship among LGBTQ+ groups, different groups learning from each other, communicating with each other, asking questions and working together towards a more resilient LGBTQ+ community. And definitely more inclusion, more accessibility especially for the disabled community, which is still part of a very marginalised, although around 40% of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as having a form of disability, whether it’s a physical disability, whether it’s sensory impairment, whether it’s mental health or chronic health conditions, and that is a very large part of the LGBTQ+ community, so there is definitely a need for more inclusion and more accessibility for the disabled community and more allyship.
