My name is Kay Olson, though most people in the blogworld know me as Blue. Or Blue Lily, or back at the Ms. Boards before they imploded I was Blue Girl. Amp has asked me to guest blog for a month and I’m thrilled to be a contributor here. My blog is The Gimp Parade, which has been linked to occasionally here.
It’s a single issue blog about disability from a disability rights perspective, but since disability issues are as diverse as topics that relate to feminism there’s a healthy bit of variation to what I write about, I hope. I do like to look at books and movies from a disability studies perspective, and most recently I’ve been sharing my personal adventures with the health care system and Medicare politics. I look forward to discussing all these things with Alas readers and learning what I can from this much larger and more talkative audience.
Check out my blogroll if disability issues interest you. There’s been an explosion of disability bloggers in the past year or two and I’m just one of the squeaky wheels. For example, there are dozens of bloggers with autism representing themselves and their ways of thinking not just from a disability rights perspective, but as a unique cultural experience too.
Anyway, thanks, Amp, for the invite! I hope what I write about is of interest here.
