What is Ableism and How Does it Affect Your Life? With Carson Tueller

Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness #152 March 10, 2020

Carson Tueller is an LGBTQ+ and Disability Advocate, and most recently a policy advisor for Andrew Yang’s 2020 Presidential campaign. His life changed in 2013 when an accident left him paralyzed. Through his journey, he’s brought to light many issues the Disabled community faces including shame, how to talk about sexuality and human worth. He joined Jonathan to explain what ableism is, how he came out to his family after serving his LDS mission, and why investing in accessibility is great for everyone if anyone plans on getting older!
