From Furiosa to Tyrion Lannister, we are seeing a major shift in how geek media portrays disability. We are no longer just inspiration porn or the plucky sidekick. Instead, we are becoming central to the storytelling process as characters in our own right who are more than just our disabilities. Join us to discuss how this change affects us, both as geeks and as part of the disability community.
