picture_this_10040122

Filmmaker and vlogger Ross Wilcock presents short films building on his own video for BBC The Social, Online Dating with a Disability. Themes of ableism and anxiety around sex and dating are explored alongside joy in self-expression and claiming Queer and Disabled as an identity. Screening along with Ross’ own work are Sherren Lee’s The Things You Think I’m Thinking, about a burn-survivor and amputee going on a date for the first time since his accident, and Picture This, in which Canadian activist Andrew Gurza describes his mission to make sex and disability part of the public discourse.  

Followed by a discussion hosted by Ross Wilcock on being queer and Disabled and what that means for your dating life. In partnership with Glasgow Disability Alliance.

Tickets are priced on a sliding scale £0-£8 depending on what you can afford. To book, please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.
