Hi guys. I'm Michael Riordan, a 30-year-old gay guy with cerebral palsy, which affects how I walk and how I see. At school I was bullied and had to deal with an overbearing support worker. But I was very lucky to go to university, and recently completed my PhD. At 30, I'm still worried how people perceive me, particularly when I got out to clubs and bars. So I've created a survey about disabled people's experiences of UK nightlife, based on my own frustrations being mistaken for a drunk, which anyone can complete at https://enabl.in You might also like to check out my blog at https://www.michaelriordan.org.uk
