Hey, , trying to force attendees who use mobility aids, like canes, to wear prop/costume wristbands is a blatant violation of the ADA. My isn’t a fucking costume I can take off, or that I wear for -who’s next? Wheelchair, scooter, walker users?

Had to crawl up the stairs at Liverpool st bc the lift was out of order. Shouldn’t face this humiliation in 2018. Accessible travel is a right not a privilege.

I had a great time at the festival, the staff were offering to set up tents, there was sign language for music & a quiet camp. After working & attending festivals for several years It’s great to see the progress made for extra support.👏🏻

"You aren't disabled" I keep hearing regularly because I don't have a wheelchair or don't have a walking stick. can mean anything from cancer to mental health or unable to walk People trying to undermine everything you say or do on Twitter is boring
