Further to my earlier post about comedian and writer Henry Normal’s Radio 4 programme today, Henry has told me that his disabled son, Johnny, is an artist.
Johnny has an exhibition of over 40 paintings at Phoenix Gallery Brighton throughout April. The event is called ‘Art By Johnny’.

This programme was on Radio 4 this morning. It is a recording of a show performed in front of a Brighton audience by Brighton-based writer, poet and comedian Henry Normal talking about life with his autistic son, Johnny.
We would like to introduce you to our brand new logo which has been created for us by Michele Allardyce, a local graphic designer. It is designed to be as accessible as possible to people with visual impairments but also, of course, is very ‘Brighton’!
We've just heard about this fantastic new community on Facebook - Hidden Stories - which provides support for people living with and affected by conditions and ...disabilities that you can't see. By sharing stories, helpful links and fun cartoons they are bringing people together on a journey of advocacy for people with invisible conditions.
You might find it useful to join up and add your story.
Today is World Down Syndrome Day.
This looks interesting...
Good to know...
This looks like some good news for people who use wheelchairs
We had the pleasure of attending several events at the B Right On festival over the last few weeks which was organised by the wonderful volunteers of Brighton and Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum. You may remember that we - Disability Pride Brighton - enlisted their help to support us in organising our last Disability Pride event. We are happy to announce that they will again be helping us to organise this year’s Disability Pride Brighton festival on Saturday, 14th July 2018.... They are a wonderful team and it was fabulous to be able to contract them to work with us last year and to use their expertise of arranging events for disabled people.
This photo was taken on Saturday - Billie Lewis, Chair of the B&H LGBT Community Safety Forum, AJ, his wonderful assistant with me (Jenny) in the centre.
The photo was courtesy of Proud Parkers Photography whose mobile photography studio - and their props - provided so much fun at last year’s Disability Pride festival and they will be attending again this year. It wouldn’t be the same without them!
