Letters: October 2013

This is a very clever and well-formulated story [“Criptopia,” August 2013]. It demonstrated so beautifully the issues, and just how easy it is to make change that has a major impact.

I am a gay male wheelchair user, and I find that lengthy issue title [“Sex, Wheels and Relationships”] becomes the punch line of many jokes, many being my own. Why? Because sexuality and […]

Stop hatin' Lady Gaga's gold wheelchair

Stop hatin’ Lady Gaga’s gold wheelchair
