Who is Paul?

Paul Vugteveen is a type 1 diabetic from the US, who loves running to manage his diabetes. Combining his need to run with his day job, he started a campaign called “outrun the homelessness” to disrupt intergenerational poverty in his region. He challenges the dominant idea that poverty is a moral position and believes housing is a human right. He let’s us reflect on the racist and sexist structures that make correlation exist with those issues in the first place.

I am not here for someone elses inspiration.

It is much more than…

This week’s podcast episode is about much more than a diabetes story. It is about thriving beyond once own challenges with diabetes and recognise the struggle of others. Paul is a great example, that diabetes cannot stop us, but rather inspires us to become more and support each other. Yet, Paul highlights that this is no inspirational porn. He says: “I am not hear for someone else’s inspiration”. He talks about the betrayal people with disabilities can face and what this definition means exactly. Tune into the episode to hear the full story!

Inspiration porn betrayals people with disabilities,
as a form of inspiration for people,
who ware not disabled.
