Disability Arts Online & Graeae present The Disability And…Podcast

Disability Arts Online, the leading publication for disability arts is joining forces with Graeae to deliver the Disability And…Podcast over the next 12 months.

The Disability And…Podcast promises to get right to the heart of some of the most pressing issues in arts, culture and beyond with a series of bold, provocative and insightful interviews with disabled artists, key industry figures and the odd legend.

12. Disability And…Working-Class LGBTQIA+ Perspectives

Sandra Alland talks to Cate Lauder, Shafiq Ghafoor and Mattie Kennedy about Disability and…working-class LGBTQIA+ perspectives on the arts in Scotland. Recorded at National Theatre of Scotland’s Rockvilla studios, Sandra and their guests discuss community, barriers for multiply-marginalised people in the Scottish arts scene, and the arts futures they’re dreaming up.


Four people sitting together round a table, smiling at the camera. Cate Lauder is a white woman with shoulder-length brown hair and glasses, wearing a blue dress and cardigan. Shafiq Ghafoor is a brown non-binary person with short, curly brown hair, a beard and glasses. They wear a red vest and rainbow scarf. Sandra Alland is a white person with short brown hair and black glasses, wearing a long-sleeved black shirt. Mattie Kennedy is a white femme with shoulder-length wavy hair, also wearing a long-sleeved black top. They sit in front of shelves of books and awards.
