Writer and Performer
About the Artist
Adina Burke is a writer and performer with Cerebral Palsy and mental illnesses.
Her work focuses on spirituality, disability rights and queer identity. Her most recent self-published work Wheelchairs, Whips, and Bondage Tape (2017) is gaining more traction for its candidness and overall vulnerability on the topic of disability and sexuality.
ON ALLYSHIP AND EDUCATION
When it comes to advocacy, Adina has always expressed the importance of "passing the mic". In her work, she is very transparent with her own personal struggles, and thus, more relatability. Through relatability comes incredibly important conversations.
Adina's mission is simple, to encourage listening and lifting of other voices.
“I hate writing, I love having written.”
