Exhibition to launch Coastal Twist Festival
An Ettalong cafe will host an Outing Disability exhibition featuring photographer Ms Belinda Mason as the "launch event" of the Coastal Twist Festival in October.
"This photographic series invites you on a reflective journey into the lives of people with disability as they dispel myths about disability and share their struggles and triumphs of coming out, discovering love, exploring identity and finding pride," said Coastal Twist artistic director Ms Glitta Supernova.
"Here, as in our community at large, the assumptions we make about people with disability must be negotiated in order to clearly see the individual for who they are."
"Outing Disability encourages you to reflect on your attitudes and assumptions about the sexuality and gender of people with disability."
She said that it would invite consideration of how individuals and the community can work to become more inclusive and uphold the rights of sexuality and gender diverse people with disability.
Ms Mason is a prize-winning photographer with works displayed in Shape Arts Gallery UK, Museum of Sex New York, the Australian National Maritime Museum and the Australian Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies, Canberra.
Outing Disability will launch Coastal Twist Festival from 5pm on October 2 and run from 8:30am to 4:30pm every day until October 16 at the Re:Publik Cafe.
