Shout Out: Love Enabled docuseries

Posted On: December 3, 2023

As a relationship counselor and clinical sexologist, I fully support Love Enabled for its powerful message and impact. This docuseries highlights the experiences of individuals with disabilities in the dating world, challenging stereotypes and promoting inclusivity. It emphasizes that people with disabilities deserve love, relationships, happiness, and sexual fulfillment (I added the last part). By showcasing the journeys of individuals like Liana and Stephanie, Love Enabled breaks down barriers and encourages viewers to challenge societal norms surrounding disability and relationships. It is a groundbreaking series that raises awareness and advocates for the rights of individuals with disabilities to experience fulfilling relationships.

Most people might not know that I was involved in creating and facilitating a series of virtual sexuality education workshops for parents of people with disabilities and for their children a few years ago in partnership with the Disabled People’s Association. The project was titled Disordinary Love and you can find the training videos we did put up on YouTube here. Also you can find Disordinary Love on Instagram here. You may wish to read more about it here.

Follow them as they take the plunge into the unpredictable and exciting world of love and relationships.
