Spilling the Tea in New Docuseries What’s the Disabili-Tea

What’s the Disabili-Tea, edited by DEGANZ member and alum Brendon Chan is available to watch on Attitude! DEGANZ president Robyn Paterson worked as the executive producer with director and producer Justin Scott. It explores the lives of queer and disabled people in Aotearoa as a six-part anthology docuseries, funded by NZOA.

While drag icon Misty Frequency celebrates autistic and Takatāpui excellence, Ari proudly struts down Karangahape Road with his cane, and Cait and Rimu spill the tea on being misgendered in the healthcare system. The series also delves into living with invisible disabilities and showcases queer and disability pride.

This series offers an authentic look into the experience many non-disabled people do not consider. While highlighting issues of accessibility within society, What’s the Disabili-Tea ultimately celebrates the queer disabled community.

Brendon Chan works as a film and television editor for drama, factual, music videos, TV commercials, and other promotional content. His past credits include The Pact, Albularyo, and short film Blood and Gold.

Congratulations to Brendon and Robyn on the release!
