The empowering #DisabledandCute hashtag is rewriting the narrative about what disabilities look like
You know those days when you wear a bomb outfit, do your hair and makeup perfectly, or just feel GD fabulous? Yeah, we do too. And when Keah Brown, a 25-year-old New York-based journalist, had one of those days, she posted about it on Twitter — and started a movement.
Brown has cerebral palsy, which can “affect a person’s posture, balance and ability to move, communicate, eat, sleep, and learn,” according to the Cerebral Palsy Alliance, and it sometimes makes her feel insecure. So when she was having a particularly cute day, she posted some photos on Twitter with the hashtag #DisabledandCute — and it caught on right away.
