#DisabledandCute: This New Twitter Hashtag is SO Empowering

Talk about amazing!

Journalist Keah Brown was feeling totally cute one day, and she decided to share her sense of self-confidence and empowerment on Twitter. Keah has cerebral palsy, and she uploaded a series of selfies with the caption: “I want to shoutout my Disabled brothers, sisters, & non-binary folks! #DisabledAndCute.”

Since then, the hashtag has exploded. People from all over the world are tweeting their pictures with the hashtag, sharing how confident, sexy and totally amazing they are.

It’s become an emotional boost, like this:

And this:

And a way for people to show that beautiful comes in every wrapper.

It gave other people a way to explain things they might not have felt comfortable discussing before.

And how being different means only that we are simply 100% unique!

Here is a compilation of more inspiring #disabledandcute posts:

“I started it as a way to say I was proud of the growth that I made in learning to like myself and my body,” Keah told Teen Vogue. “Disabled people are presumed to be unattractive and unlovable in a romantic way. In my opinion, the hashtag proves that to be false. The celebrations should show able-bodied people that we aren’t the caricatures they see in movies and TV shows. We are much more.”

A disability does not define someone. We applaud Keah for creating this hashtag and for showing that having a disability in no way makes someone less beautiful or less powerful.
