Summary

Let’s recap Disruption Part 1. First, if you haven’t seen that episode please go to https://www.thegeneanddaveshow.com/disruption-part-1-of-2/ to view it . In that episode we learned that people with disabilities were using art as a medium to disrupt societies perception of people with disabilities. We saw the parody of Helen Keller by the Mickee Faust club . “But before we hear about Drag syndrome, let’s hear about the making of Mickee Faust’s The Miracle Worker.”

In Disruptions Part 2 we learn about Terry’s motivation to create that video.   After another spirited discussion of disruption, we see a film about Drag Syndrome, which is a performance group out of the UK. They are so disruptive that they were initially banned from performing at a theater in Michigan.  Open minded fans found another venue for Drag Syndrome at which to perform.
