I want to ask a lot of questions to a world that doesn’t see me when I want to be part of the world, and sees me, a disabled person, just to hate or pity me. It is hard to live or fit into a world that doesn’t love you, that wants to erase you, sometimes wants to hurt you, wants to spit on you. My piece is my comeback to that.

Dolly Sen is a disabled, working-class queer who has a brain of ill-repute that wants to disrupt systems that hurt people, not through trojan horse viruses but with My Little Ponies on acid with a little sadness in their hearts. Because of this she is a writer, artist, performer and filmmaker. Ten of her books have been published, she has written several chapters for academic publications, penned work for both theatre and film, and her subversive blogs around art, disability and humour for Disability Arts Online have a huge international following.

Dolly currently resides in Norwich. She/They.
