Does anyone have the resources/time/desire to run a challenge similar to [community profile] dark_agenda's chromatic Yuletide challenge? At least in my perception, that challenge has done a fair amount to raise visibility of and thoughtfulness around chromatic sources. I think it would be fabulous if we did a similar challenge for characters with canon disabilities, but I am (obnoxiously) promoting the idea while admitting that there's no way on earth I have time to help run it.

(Only one of my Yuletide nominations is for book starring a character with a disability: Dia Reeves' awesome Bleeding Violet, whose protagonist has bipolar disorder.)

I wish I could help, but I cannot even meet the needs of my own comm without begging kind souls for assistance.
However, a thought! Since intersectionality and all that... if people here wanted to add to the list of chromatic disabled characters we were compiling a while ago to help promote festibility, they could be easily added to a new column in our awesome spreadsheet of information, so that folks could easily find fandoms with chromatic AND disabled characters to write in.

This is a brilliant idea. I realise you already have lots to organise, but it could be good to add a column for lgbt characters too.

Oops, sorry. Shortly after posting the comment I thought "Way to go Sophie, what are the odds they haven't thought of that already?"

*pokes at your spreadsheet of awesome belatedly*
Wow, that is awesome :)

Is your awesome spreadsheet of information posted anywhere publicly, so we can use it as a model for this, or would you mind emailing it to me, please?

Spreadsheet of Awesomeness!

And I'd suggest you poke around at all the various admin lists and post we have at [community profile] dark_agenda to see how we ran stuff last year and are trying to this year so you can figure out what stuff of ours might work for you.

Also our list of chromatic disabled characters
