I know what you are thinking:
Does having a disability mean I am disadvantaged?
Does being gay mean I face discrimination?
Sometimes both — but not all the time.
Based on real-life events, ''Anecdotes of a Disabled Gay'' is a collection of the shit people say to a thirty-something-year-old disabled gay man. This book will change the way you think about disability and sexuality, one pair of 'magic shoes' at a time!
Canberra-based Wayne is a public speaker, presenter, advocate, and now writer promoting the rights of and opportunities for people with disability and people in the LGBTIQ community. In his career to date Wayne has undertaken a number of speaking opportunities throughout Australia on issues of disability, diversity, and human resources. Wayne has a unique, humorous, thought-provoking, and challenging insight into the issues facing people with disability. He too has a disability, but is well-known for forgetting about it. ‘Is it wrong that I forget I have a disability? I just get on with things; I’ve got shit to do.’
Wayne believes his parents won the diversity lottery, as he is a disabled, gay, aspiring drag queen! Wayne can be regularly seen wearing magic shoes.
