There are so many things I loved about #CripCamp. The focus on joy, self-expression, and fierce community interdependence, as well as on sexuality. I loved the way Denise and Neil J. spoke in front of each other so frankly about their relationship/sexual histories.

As a queer person I related so much to the kind of discovery at camp that you could be a sexual being/could be physically affectionate and expressive and that it was a beautiful and revolutionary thing. That joy was revolutionary. That community care was revolutionary.

That listening to each other's stories was revolutionary. Not articulating this well...But, I've been homebound with ME for 6 years and before that did not identify as disabled and I find that in a way, the disabled community I've found on twitter is my "crip camp" and

there are so many activists I admire--and so much sharing of stories and so much mutual care and so much sharing of essential and meaningful information. Hearing @judithheumann speak about the importance of listening to each other's stories meant so much....

Just everyone in the film I felt such a sense of privilege getting to know. This film is a privilege to watch and it is also profoundly important. The personal histories and the political histories--

and a revolution that starts with community care--shared joy and shared grief and shared acknowledgement of experiences.

Thanks to everyone who worked on this film and thanks @jenbrea for organizing the showing.
