As associate producer for the show @SeeOfficial, I can tell you the entire cast and crew worked together to challenge misconceptions about #blindness and bring all viewers into our world. Here are some of the ways we did that:
The #blind / #Blindness community gave ongoing input on scripts & creative direction to depict blindness respectfully and authentic to world of SEE. Our cast includes blind and low-vision actors. We want to open doors to roles that historically have only gone to sighted peers
We asked all our actors, both sighted and #blind, what format they would like their scripts in for accessibility. Many said they’d never been offered a choice before and even sighted actors started using VoiceOver and Voice Dream Reader to learn their lines. @AppleTVPlus

Today is #NationalDogDay! Lets examine what roles our 4-legged friends have played in #DisHist!
Artistic representations of dogs accompanying #blind singers, beggars etc from across the world suggests that they have often worked and lived alongside #disabled handlers..1/ The blind man wears patched clothing and seems to be a beggar: he is led by a skinny dog with its ribs showing. The blind man appears to be holding a stick to guide him as well.A medieval color illustration from the Book of Hours shows a blind man receives sight from Christ while his dog looks on.
In this #earlymodern illustration of the Dance of Death, Death cuts the rope that links the blind man and his dog: “I cut you off from your guide.”
The blind man responds, saying, “I cannot take a step without my dog (hund).”
#DisHist #NationalDogDay..2/ The engraved illustration shows Death on the left as a skeleton, confronting a man with a hat and cloak, who appears to be a blind and is led by a dog. Death is using scissors to cut the rope used to lead the dog.

Her death brought him great sorrow.
He finished all her last rites and wanted to leave that town

Confused about person-first language? Is it acceptable or not? Here's a brief history on PFL and how it went from etiquette to ableism: #pfl #ableism #acutallyautistic
In 1983, at the dawn of the AIDS crisis, a brave group of activists stood up at a health conference and made a declaration which would later be known as The Denver Principles. It was a profound treatise on human rights in the medical profession which lives on to this day.
The Denver Principles opens with "We condemn attempts to label us as "victims," a term which implies defeat, and we are only occasionally "patients," a term which implies passivity, helplessness, and dependence upon the care of others. We are "People With AIDS."

Gillar ni den här tweeten, så får ni en tweet om hur det är att vara #blind i #Sverige. Upp till 150 st eller 2 dygn, vilket som kommer först.

Det är naturligtvis enbart baserat på mina egna erfarenheter.
1) I Sverige finns inga lagat som reglerar blinda personers tillgång till utbildning i Punktskrift. Många blinda personer är därför också analfabeter, kan inte rösta, får ingen samhällsinformation, etc.
2) För er nördar - punktskrift är en slags 6-bits binär kod.

1) This #CDAN blind looks solved & exposes yet another sicko crime network, this time #SoutheastAsia. It connects several interesting items to #QAnon #crumbs. Don't eat while reading.

Lets unravel it.

2) Starting with the country in question, it's #Laos. This is the Kings Romans Casino in a remote corner of Laos. Matches the #blind. Poverty? Dead poor. Ranks 9 of 10 in the region, and #135 globally. More about the casino...

3) The blind says that "about a decade ago" it was funded. See below, the lease with the government was signed in 2007, that fits. It's a 99 year lease. And the government gets a 20% cut. Ding ding ding.
