'Dad had to carry me up stairs to the LGBT party'

In the latest Access All podcast episode:
UCAS exclusively reveals to Access All that disabled students are twice as likely to identify as LGBT.

Connor, a trans man, and Lucy, a lesbian, talk about the positive experiences they've had of finding their communities while studying, but also the challenges they've experienced, like inaccessible venues.

Emma Tracey and Martin Dougan take the show on the road to give blind tennis a go (watch out for the video on social media) to see if they're Wimbledon ready.

And disabled dancer, Kate Stanforth, talks about re-imagining her ballet career after she became a wheelchair-user and getting her students to tap dance…with their hands.
