Here I am, this is me. 27, male, and quite remarkably my disability is only the second most unusual thing about my physical appearance - but that’s for another blog, and I’m still dealing with the good vibes from finding this one. Thank you for doing what you do - consider this my attempt to help address the gender imbalance.
The photographer wanted me as a model because I had an intriguing scar (the surgery that halted my progressive spinal condition before it got much worse than “leaving me needing a cane or forearm crutches to stand or walk”), and I’m pretty sure he didn’t intend it to be sexy, but hey, death of the author. Heaven knows that’s how I feel when I look at it.
