Tune in as Andrew shares: how they were diagnosed with cerebral palsy (CP) at the age of one and a half their more recent diagnosis of IBS, and how it has presented its own challenges how COVID has affected their sex life, and why they hire sex workers where they can see room for disability discourse to grow how they emotionally process ableism from day-to-day the nuances of caregiving, and how bad management can lead to dehumanizing experiences for patients how care management can be improved from the top-down how they have cultivated their mindset — and how their #1 advocate, their mom, was key in encouraging them to develop a thick skin and a sense of humor a nuanced conversation about accessibility — and why it’s more difficult for disabled creators to create accessible content, even if we’d like to how we can work to get out of the public health crisis of bias in healthcare: by hiring those of us who are historically excluded to positions of power, to reshape the system from the top-down why and how they were inspired to create Bump’n — the world’s first disability-driven sex toy

Andrew Gurza - Controls His Joy Stick - Ep 17

Open Deeply Podcast

Andrew Gurza, award winning Disability Awareness Consultant joins us for a second episode in which he tells us about his exciting, new sex toy company, Handi along with the company’s first ground-breaking sex toy, the Joystick, that will put pleasure within reach for tens of thousands of disabled people as soon as early 2022. Andrew also drives home the power of using humor to reach people who would otherwise be too intimidated to learn about disability. Using such terms as “bear in a chair” and “queer cripple”, Andrew says that he makes discussing disability less scary for both himself and others. And Andrew isn’t shy about discussing sex. He unpacks both his exciting and traumatizing emotional experiences related to accessing sex as a disabled person, describing why these experiences have led him to having a more tantric mindset regarding sex. Please join us for another episode of Open Deeply as we learn how to break down ableism, face our fears about disability, and laugh with Andrew as we do it.Andrew Gurza is an award winning Disability Awareness Consultant and the Chief Disability Officer and Co-founder of Handi, a sex toy company that puts pleasure within reach for disabled people.

Andrew Gurza: Disabled People are Hot - Ep 16

Open Deeply Podcast

Andrew Gurza, an award-winning Disability Awareness Consultant and the Co-founder of Handi, a sex toy company that puts pleasure within reach for disabled people, joins us to tell three moving stories from his life. The first takes us to his early childhood to the moment that he really felt the emotional weight of his disability. This difficult story is interwoven with the wonderful humor Andrew is famous for. In the second story, he recounts the first time he had sex as a queer and disabled young man in college with such transparency and vulnerability that we feel everything right there with him; the excitement, the struggle, and the pain. And in his third story, he exuberantly rolls down the red carpet as his purpose and importance as a queer, disabled activist becomes crystal clear. In this interview, and as always, Andrew is brimming over with full tilt loveability, humor, and naughtiness in the best possible way. We hope you join us for this amazing episode of Open Deeply that allows us all to have a better idea of what it’s like to be queer, disabled and a living testimony to the viral hashtag of his making, #DisabledPeopleAreHot.
