As a student at Ohio Wesleyan University, he produced a short documentary film, in which he straight up asked gay men whether they would ever date someone with a disability.
Once again, some of the responses are so blunt and bigoted that it's startling, and all of it is said right to Ryan's face. But it does end on a message of hope and comes complete with a twist that I won't spoil here.
This solo show is an extension of the senior project he did for his theater degree, and he further perfected it under the mentorship of famed performance artist and gay activist Tim Miller. As Ryan admits, he still doesn't have all the answers when it comes to dating while gay and disabled. So I sincerely hope that Huff Post readers in NYC will head to Dixon Place this week to see it.
Then maybe after, you'll work up the nerve to ask Ryan out on a date.
Not long before, while Willis was at a mainstream school in Woking, Surrey, he had an operation on his hamstrings – little bows tied around the tendons to enable more movement and help him walk unaided."It was at the London boat show, in an office building. "They were in tears."For a short period in secondary school, Willis started using a wheelchair rather than the frame."My physiotherapist took me to one side and said, 'You can use this and your legs can deteriorate because of the lack of movement, or you can get back to using your walking frame.'" He took the doctor's advice. He started attending an LGBT youth group and embarked on a relationship with another guy.
" "I was going into these bars where gay men were supposed to go to be accepted, and I was being made to feel like I had four horns coming out of my head! And even though I am watching a video replay, I gasp along with the rest at each anecdote he recounts.In der freien Tanzschule taktlos in Berlin lernen Sie tanzen in entspannter Atmosphäre.Es gibt Workshops und Kurse für Anfänger und Fortgeschrittene in Standard und Latein, Salsa, Tango, Discofox und Swing.A while after I graduated from college, we became friends on Facebook, but I only got a glimpse of what he was doing with his life.So I was surprised when a post popped up in my Facebook newsfeed advertising his new show, and a risqué one to boot.
