A few years ago, comedian Brian McCarthy‘s eyesight suddenly started to fail. He rapidly lost most of his central vision, and along with it, a lifestyle he never thought to question. During this major personal upheaval, he continued to do what he has always done best and poured his angst and triumphs into creating DisLabeled, a television series that follows Brian as he meets with other disabled creators in his quest to understand how to navigate his new reality. With each episode of DisLabled, Brian brings his humor and edge to encounters with a broad range of disabled designers, activists, and technologists. They share their innovative approaches for surviving and thriving in an ableist society, while advocating for a more just and accessible future.
Episode 5 “Activism” focuses on our chapter of ADAPT! They follow one of our many protests for our #SaveNYSHomeCare Campaign to push the repeal of the stricter eligibility criteria for home care programs that the Cuomo administration instated.
