One In Five for Sunday 18 May 2008
Part 1: Wellington - Dating
Over several weeks eight people with diverse disabilities, cultures, ages, genders and sexualities, dispel myths about disability and dating, sex, relationship and having children. A mother and psychologist who happens to be deaf, an Asian gay guy with experience of mental illness, a straight guy with an intellectual disability who works as an advocate, and an intersex person who is a counselor sit down to talk about their intimate relationships.
The Wellington panel discuss what ideas they had about partner relationships growing up, if their disability has affected their dating, and what they are looking for in a partner. The Wellington Panel are: Mani Bruce Mitchell, Victoria Manning, Ivan Yeo, and David Corner.
