Abilities Expo is the North American convention for people with disabilities and the people in their lives who care.

We are growing every year, and we have a team of Ambassadors to help answer your questions. (I am one of them!) You are not alone. Come find your community. You can keep up with our recent events and other disability community news and Abilities.com.
"Rebirth Garments are gender non-conforming wearables and accessories for people on the full spectrum of gender, size and ability. Every piece is made to order and is tailored to your exact specifications. Garments are fully customizable and there are no standard sizes.
Rebirth Garment’s mission is to create gender non-conforming wearables and accessories for people on the full spectrum of gender, size and ability. The line creates a community where all people can confidently express their individuality and identity. Our identity is that of QueerCrip, a politicized umbrella term that encompasses queer, gender nonconforming identities, visible and invisible disabilities/ disorders—physical, mental, developmental, emotional ect. In particular, our trans* and disabled communities have very particular clothing needs that are not adequately served by mainstream clothing designers. Instead of being centered on cisgender, heterosexual, white, thin people, Rebirth Garments is centered on QueerCrip people.
Rebirth Garments challenges mainstream beauty standards that are sizest, ableist, and conform to the gender binary. Instead, we maintain the notion of Radical Visibility, a movement based on claiming our bodies and, through the use of bright colors, exuberant fabrics, and innovative designs, highlighting the parts of us that society typically shuns. Through Radical Visibility, we refuse to assimilate and can create a QueerCrip dress reform movement."

Here's a #OneMinuteQuickfire interview with @hdsmedallion who makes #fashionable #adaptive bags for #wheelchairs, #walkers, #powerwheelchairs, and more!
