The DisabilityAfterDark Podcast is the only podcast dealing specifically with the often undiscussed topic of sex and disability. It is completely self-produced by Andrew Gurza. In its 54 episodes, it has amassed over 14,400 downloads and have featured topics around sex and disability that we rarely talk about; consent and disability, the realities of sex, sexuality and disability that do not get touched upon.
The program also opens up a platform to allow disabled people to come on as a guests and assert their sexuality by telling their stories about sex and disability in their own words. So often when we hear about sex and disability it is not from a first person narrative, and this program aims to change that.
Lastly, DisabilityAfterDark is a program that can help to educate the non-disabled community around sex and disability. It helps to answer their questions, makes them think, and gives them a whole new perspective they may not have considered.
What our grantee is saying: "I am so honored to receive the #AwesomeDisability Award for DisabilityAfterDark. It means so much to me because I self-produce the show, and it is currently one of the only programs focusing on sex and disability exclusively. To be able to receive funding that I can use to grow the program, and open up conversations around sex and disability even more is just, well, awesome."
