Disabled not Discarded! About Us
G’day my name is Mia G Vayner, I am a fifty something out lesbian woman born in Australia who has resided in New york since 1998. I have lived with my life partner and wife Ella for almost 15 years.
My friends will tell you I have always had a disability, a quick wit and a sharp mind and a total inability to handle stupidity. If you’re asking about the wheels under my ass, its a hereditary neurological disorder that is degenerative and makes walking and standing the cause of severe seizures so the only safe way to get through life is on two wheels. This has been my life for about 5 years. So When you mix my friends opinion of me with the ever growing lack of care and concern by those in power for the rights of the wheelchair bound, my choices became scream or do something about it, The first can get you arrested so the blog was born.
I’m serving notice to those who say through their laws, their lack of adherance to laws, and by their complete disregard or simple lack of thought for the disabled, we’ll photograph, we’ll blog and we’ll tell the powers that be until you make it right. In the meantime, there are thousands of places like this where we come to share our experiences and then we go out and vote with not only our dollars but also our voices! Be on Notice!
