Hi Team Swine

Posted July 13th, 2014 by Anthony

In the summer of 1972 I spent weeks in Alta Bates Hospital in Berkeley. I had managed to get third degree burns on my foot, which got infected. After IV antibiotics, a skin graft and months of elevating my leg it healed.

During my stay friends from Sonoma County came to visit a couple of times. One time I was awarded the Hi Team Swine award for being careless.

Disability Art at the de Young

Posted October 4th, 2013 by Anthony

Over the past four years I have had the incredible opportunity to produce lectures on disability in the fine arts at San Francisco’s de Young Museum.

A New Disability Hero!

Posted September 16th, 2013 by Anthony

Doc-Pomus on stage
We have another hero. Hugh Gallagher gave us FDR. The world knew FDR was disabled, but until Gallagher none of us knew that FDR’s disability experience had a profound effect on his life and world view. After polio, FDR began to root for the poor.

I know, hero is so overused when it is applied to us disabled folk that I hesitate to use the term. But it’s accurate. Doc Pomus is my hero. After you hear the stories, he might be yours, too. To find out check out a new documentary “AKA Doc Pomus” that captures some of the highlights of his disabled life.

LiANA’s Music Found in Human Beings II

Posted July 5th, 2013 by Anthony

Just last May, in Chicago, the Bodies of Work Festival rocked me. I was there for 8 days to swim in disability culture, see my arty-type friends, and, oh yeah, visit my niece who I hadn’t seen in years. The Festival was a marvel. It was engrossing, confounding, fun, exhausting, inspiring, and ultimately so satisfying. […]
