Keah Brown feels cute, and she’s not afraid to show it.
But for the 25-year-old from upstate New York, it hasn’t always been that way.
“It took me a while to get to that place to feel any sort of positive thing about my physical appearance,” says Brown, who has cerebral palsy. “So now that I do, I’m like, hey, I might as well celebrate it.”
On Feb. 12, 2017, Brown shared photos of herself on Twitter using the hashtag #DisabledAndCute.

The idea behind the hashtag was pretty simple. “What I wanted to do was make something that felt empowering to me and to other disabled people,” she explains. The message caught on. Others in the disability community started sharing photos of themselves using the hashtag, too.
