Finding love as a disabled person


Finding the man or woman of your dreams is never easy, but it can be even trickier if you are physically disabled.

In 1Xtra's documentary, Willing and Able, Hollyoaks actress and wheelchair user Kelly-Marie Stewart takes a frank look at the prejudices and challenges young disabled people face dating and having relationships and tells her own story of becoming disabled at 21.

1Xtra News also follows Karen, a wheelchair user on a night out in Edinburgh, as she tries to find a club with the right access.
