Bold Blind Beauty “empowers, connects, and breaks barriers,” providing the means to “clear the air” for people with disabilities. The acronym A.I.R. – Accessibility, Inclusion, and Representation – articulates the goals of this innovative initiative, expressed through “Beyond Sight Magazine,” on their website and via “Bold Blind Beauty on A.I.R.” and blog. Each edition of “Bold Blind Beauty on A.I.R.,” on You Tube, includes three segments: Bold – concepts and companies and people; Blind – accessibility, ideas, tips and/products and Beauty – products. Their “bold, blind and stylish fashion icon,” Abby, conveys the beauty of her “blind and low vision sisters nationwide.” Abby emerged from the imagination of Bold Blind Beauty founder Stephanie McCoy. Bold Blind Beauty embodies its founder’s vision: “The one thing sight loss taught me is perception is more profound than seeing. I may have lost my sight but my clarity has increased exponentially and for this I am grateful.” To sample the You Tube series: Welcome To Bold Blind Beauty On A.I.R.
