It’s Valentine’s Day this month and we at dubble want to spotlight some of the incredible disabled influencers advocating for the inclusion of disabled experiences in conversations about sex and relationships. Despite often being portrayed as sexless beings, disabled people thrive in sexual and romantic relationships and these are just a few of the creators highlighting this.
1. Erin Clark
Erin, originally from Canada, is a multi-talented disabled icon whose work encompasses film, non-fiction and fiction writing and self-portraiture. She is a world champion pole dancer and, most recently, has become a paragliding pilot. Clark is also the creator of How To Be A Sex Icon and works hard to challenge the societal belief that disabled people are not sexual beings.
2. Eva Sweeney
Tobi is a wheelchair dancer and advocate for disabled people everywhere. She covers a wide range of topics including disabled sexuality and relationships.
4. Shane Burcaw
Shane is a YouTuber and advocate whose content covers all things disability, including sex and the ins and outs of being in a relationship with a non-disabled partner. His videos often confront the constant stream of ableist comments he and his partner Hannah deal with on a daily basis.
5. Saira B
Saira B is a nonbinary trans cane user who uses Instagram to show that being disabled is sexy as hell.
6. Briana Mills
Briana is a muscular dystrophy educator, disability rights activist, and an associate marriage and family therapist who uses her platform to discuss disability, relationships, sex and her love for Disney.
