My Dad and I visited Birmingham twice this week to attend the Commonwealth Games. We went to the badminton and then returned a few days later for the artistic gymnastics. I’ve shared about both of those on my insta but will return at some point to write the blog entry those events deserve.
Sadly I experienced discrimination and ableism during my visit to the gymnastics. And in a way that I never had before (which having been disabled since birth is saying something).
West England Bylines gave me an opportunity to write an article for them about it: Commonwealth Games Visit by Wheelchair User Spoilt.
I’d appreciate it if you could read and share.
