Here at Disability Horizons, we are all about celebrating disability equality and inclusion and giving you a voice. We have our exclusive articles written by our community of disabled writers and our fortnightly online talk show, Disability Horizons TV, in which we discuss and debate the latest disability topics.
As well as all that, we have our Disability Horizons Shop, which sells a wide range of stylish, practical and accessible products for everyday living. But our online store also wants to support disability equality and inclusion too with its new range of Lettering Works disability stickers and Disability Horizons T-shirts.
Raising awareness and acceptance of disability
As a disabled community, we continuously fight for and promote disability representation and acceptance in society. We raise awareness of different disabilities and health conditions and how they can be visible or hidden.
We also encourage disabled people to see what is possible and how to fight for the rights for a full quality of life without barriers.
Many barriers disabled people face include the lack of compliance with disability rights laws, such as the Equality Act 2010, segregating students or adults with disabilities from others, inaccessible websites, and refusing to provide reasonable adjustments in buildings and public places.
We also want to encourage non-disabled people to accept and support the disabled community. For instance, don’t assume you know someone’s needs, listen to disabled people when they request assistance and talk about disability with children and young people to normalise it.
Lettering Works disability sticker collection
To celebrate and campaign for disability equality and inclusion, we’ve launched a new range of disability stickers created by Lettering Works, available to purchase on the Disability Horizons Shop.
The stickers were crafted to help those facing the day-to-day challenges of disability, chronic illness or mental health problems by promoting equality, inclusion, awareness, positivity and reminding us all that it’s OK to ask for help.
You can stick them wherever it will brighten up you or someone else’s day, for instance on notebooks and journals, bags and suitcases, mugs and drinking bottles and even wheelchairs and mobility aids.
Each sticker has an artistic and ingenious slogan written in modern, stylish and colourful lettering, all created by award-winning lettering artist Chelsie Tamms, who has scoliosis and had spinal fusion surgery at the age of 14, as well as Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD).
Some of the stickers available on the Disability Horizons Shop include:
Disability pride means you take pride in your whole self, which includes your disability. It means you understand your limitations, including chronic pain or illness, but accept and love who you are.
The ‘Disability pride’ stickers come in two styles – flowers and butterfly. The flowers design has “Disability” in cursive and “PRIDE” in all caps and rainbow colours. The lettering is surrounded by hand-drawn leaves and flowers, as well as some dots.
The butterfly sticker design has “Disability Pride” written in prink, orange and pink around the border and an orange butterfly in the middle.
Buy the ‘Disability pride’ stickers on the Disability Horizons Shop.
Work your quirk
We are all different – disabled and able-bodied – and have unique quirks. Our quirks should be embraced in loving and accepting ourselves fully. Own your uniqueness and disability with pride – because it makes you who you are.
The ‘Work your quirk’ stickers come in two styles. The first style is a black and blue cloud design with “work your quirk” written in multicoloured text. The second style is a “work your quirk” lettered sticker written in multicoloured text.
Check out the ‘Work your quirk’ stickers on the Disability Horizons Shop.
You are enough
Always remember that you are enough, just the way you are – disabled or able-bodied. There is nothing you need to change about yourself.
In society, on the other hand, there are some changes that are needed to make everyone feel included and loved as they should be.
The sticker has a white background with “You are enough” written in multicolour text.
Go to the Disability Horizons Shop to purchase the ‘You are enough’ sticker.
Access is love
Accessibility is key to creating an equitable world. Instead of thinking about accessibility as a burden or after-thought, it should be an act of love and thoughtful intention. Everyone deserves access and everyone deserves love.
The ‘Access is love’ sticker has a white cloud design with LOVE written in a chubby red font.
Treat yourself to the ‘Access is love’ sticker from the Disability Horizons Shop.
