Channel 4’s Limb Pimpin’

My beautiful leg Priscilla has been a big part of my life for the last couple of years. Made by Sophie de Oliveira Barata from the Alternative Limb Project, Priscilla has challenged my own views on disability and beauty.

In May, the lads from Mattr Media followed me around for a day and asked me a few questions about being an amputee and what having a leg like Priscilla means to me. 

 

This is part of their Channel 4 series called Limb Pimpin’ and you can see how other amputees embrace their new limbs while challenging the common misconceptions of disability.

It’s available to watch now on 4OD and take a drink every time you see someone knocking back a can.
