Washington’s punk and independent music scene has a long tradition of blending politics, social justice and art. But record label owner Sean Gray says the local music community often ignores people with disabilities. Many performances are booked on stages that are inaccessible to mobility-impaired people, up or down narrow flights of stairs. But Gray says the scene also fails to create a safe, inclusive cultural space for young people to talk about disabilities. He joins Kojo to discuss his latest project, a national database that grades show venues on their accessibility.
