Rainbow Zebra - EDS - Disability Pride Micrography Print (8"x8" or 8"x10")
July is #DisabilityPrideMonth: show your stripes with pride!
The zebra was adopted as a symbol for rare conditions and disabilities; many medical students are taught, "When you hear hooves, think horses, not zebras." And for many medical diagnoses, the logic may hold true: common conditions are, after all, common. However, some human bodies *do* have those less-common conditions... and while each individual "rare" condition may only affect a limited number of people, there are so many *different* rare conditions that it is not all that rare to have one of them. So while each of us may have different colored stripes -- put us all together, and you have a stampeding dazzle of zebras! (Yes, that's an actual collective noun for zebras. Dazzle on, zebra dazzle!)
While the zebra has been embraced by communities with all sorts of rare conditions and disabilities, this artist has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), and the EDS community has embraced the zebra symbolism with particular enthusiasm. This design is filled with text from the (start of the) Wikipedia article on EDS, with the imagery giving a salute to the visibility and pride of all her fellow zebras, no matter the source of your stripes.
This piece can be personalized with a recipient's name or other text. Makes a meaningful gift for your proud zebra, or a teacher, doctor, counselor, coach, therapist, or other role model who has made life as a zebra more tolerable.
