Dear readers, the Logies usually aren’t my thing but after stumbling across this video of Dylan Alcott receiving his Logie award I thought I’d better share his great acceptance speech. He’s right, there hasn’t been many people with disabilities in the television industry but recently the number is thankfully growing with shows such as Invictus Games Tonight, The Set, The Undatable, Employable Me and Special. Just to name a few.
I would like to not only thank Dylan Alcott and the television industry as a whole for letting society know that people like me are no different and everything is possible but also you dear readers for acceptance and understanding while you read this blog. Keep doing what you’re doing.
