Pigeonhole challenges the stereotypes that disabled people are all white, straight, middle class people in search of a cure for their bodies and minds the way mainstream media would make it seem. Made by from disability community, and centering disabled people as audience, Pigeonhole interrogates the assumptions and biases we hold about disability and embraces all parts of people's identities. We uplift disability culture, celebrate identity, and break out of the narrow pigeonholes people attempt to stuff us in.
