Equal too: accurate representation matters
Jameela Jamil tells us about battling entertainment industry ableism as a performer with an invisible disability, while RJ Mitte tells us about how he purposefully normalized his disability in the early days of his career. We talk to CEO Keely Cat-Wells, who was denied an acting job due to her disability, and now runs a talent agency for disabled talent, and LA mega talent agent Eryn Brown, who herself has a disability and knows discrimination only too well, and has just started a 1 in 4’ campaign ‘aimed at instigating change in Hollywood. What will it take to change? In fashion – if 15% of the world is disabled, why aren’t 15% of catwalk models? Sinéad Burke who advocates for accessible design in fashion and was the first Little Person to feature on the cover of Vogue, speaks to us about what can be done.
