The goal of RespectAbility is to fight stigmas and advances opportunities for people with disabilities. Our greatest allies in this battle for a better future are TV shows that accurately portray people with disabilities for the ABILITIES — and interesting lives and perspectives we offer. Fully 56 million Americans have a disability, but very few shows actually are accurate. Emmy-winning #BornThisWay
features wonderfully accurate, fun and diverse portrayals of people with disabilities and the people who love them.
During each episode, we’ll be hosting a Twitter chat that will take a look at ideas explored in #BornThisWay by the cast members. We invite you to participate using #BornThisWay and #BTWchat. Learn more and review the questions on our website here
Season 3 begins on Tuesday, May 16 at 9/8c with two all new episodes! I watched a preview of the new season, and it’s fabulous!

P.S. ABC has just renewed Speechless, which also has an accurate portrayal of disability. YAY!
