Kenny Fries

What makes a life worth living? Do looks, ability, and talent make your life more valuable than someone else's? Kenny Fries has made it his life’s work to understand just that. And he should know better than anyone. As a disabled, Jewish, gay man he has spent years thinking about things as an outsider. He has transformed his personal journeys into deeply insightful books, shedding light on the devastating effects of discrimination against the imperfect.

Debbie talks to Kenny about living with, and writing about disability. “We will all be disabled. Whether it’s from a virus, or a slip in the bathtub, or old age, we will become disabled in some way.”
