Watching this HBO doc on former Miss Iowa Abbey Curran, the first woman to compete in the Miss USA Pageant with a disability. Curran has cerebral palsy and has created the Miss You Can Do it Pageant to give a multitude of young girls with disabilities an opportunity to be themselves and be celebrated for that, and not some ridiculous idea of beauty or competition.
I’m typically not a pageant person — far, far from it — but I didn’t even make it through the opening credits before the water works were out in full force.
