Karolyn Gehrig is a queer disabled artist & writer.
She began advocacy work for other patients in 2006, and recently spoke at Stanford MedicineX.
Her project #HospitalGlam, is a photo-based social movement about reclaiming clinical space for patients so they can better advocate for themselves. Below are a couple of pics but for more check out #hospitalglam on Instagram
Here the #Axschat team chat with Karolyn about the inspiration behind HospitalGlam and the positives that can be drawn from community online and offline. We lost video for Debra part way through – we think a hurricane blowing up the eastern seaboard is a fair excuse.
