Disability is often framed as the unfortunate exception or problem to fix on the periphery, but what would happen if we brought disability to the center of the conversation? Rebekah Taussig grew up believing that her disabled body made her an outsider and disqualified her from some of the most fundamental parts of being human. In this talk, she resists that narrative, exploring how our perspectives might expand if we brought disability to the center. How might our understanding of beauty, love and romance, movement, work, and storytelling evolve and transform?
