The 2nd Disability in Film Blogathon is Here!

In August, Crystal from In the Good Old Days of Classic Hollywood and I decided to bring back the Disability In Film Blogathon, which I hosted it by myself two years ago. This year we have joined forces and we’re collaborating together for the first time.

Check out the first Disability in film blogathon entries.

The purpose of this blogathon is to pay tribute to those on-screen characters or real life film stars who have endured any form of disability, a subject that is often greeted with accolades but is very rarely explored. Because the subject can be hearkened back to our life, Crystal are proud to be hosting this blogathon, which commences today.

For those of you who are participating, please submit your entries below or send them to Crystal. Thank you. We are excited to read your posts.
