    Thanks for the link, @Sly Saint :)

    I saw something about this on twitter not long ago so it's nice to read more about the photo shoot.

    It's so important to spread the word that ambulatory wheelchair users exist :emoji_wheelchair:

    I always need a wheelchair when going through airports. On my last trip I wore a shirt (see photo below) which seemed to help -- designed by twitter user @annieelainey

    The person pushing my wheelchair even asked me whether it was about invisible illnesses. I'm pleased that more people are starting to be aware of this issue.
