“My future… hasn’t been written yet. I’m the one who has to write it…not the outside world, not organizations. It has to come from me.”
Actor and self-advocate Larry Kubey has always been immersed in the arts. The son of classically trained musicians, Larry is extremely knowledgeable about music and performance. He also loves film; before our interview Larry and I had a great time chatting about our favorite Beatles’ movies. But finding work in the community that mirrors his passion for the arts (and for life) has been more elusive.
In this interview, Larry talks about the inequities of sheltered workshops, and his vision for the meaningful employment of people with disabilities. The future, he believes, is ours to write. We couldn’t agree more.
