Here is the portrait that will hang in the Canadian Disability Hall of Fame after today, and which will be on display 24 hours a day at Metro Hall as part of a permanent exhibit. I had to dig around to find a picture to send to the Hall of Fame people and have to say that the artist did a great job.
For those who cannot read the text on the bottom of the portrait, it reads:
For more than 30 years, David Hingsburger has fought to reduce the sexual victimization of people with developmental disabilities. A prolific author, lecturer and therapist, Hingsburger has campaigned fearlessly for greater awareness of the sexuality of people with disabilities while also coaching individuals with intellectual disabilities how to recognize and deal with problematic sexual behaviour. Hingsburger’s leadership and compassion have made it possible for more Canadians with disabilities to live with the dignity and respect that they deserve.

I'll be back tomorrow to tell you about the day. I'm a wee to excited to write anything coherent right now.
