This spring, the 25-year-old filmmaker launched a You Tube series about life with a rare form of muscular dystrophy.He's now produced more than 40 short videos in which he discusses everything from the best adaptable clothing, to his reluctance to try accessible online dating apps."I guess for some people it's a bit taboo, not because it's a bad topic per se, but because it's something they're uncomfortable talking about," said Peeler who runs Squeaky Wheel Productions."I think it's important to put myself out there because I think other people with disabilities and even able-bodied people have a lot to learn from that."And through his research, he's learning almost as much as his viewers.In one of the videos, Peeler talks about why he's been nervous to date, and lists some of the online dating sites designed for people with disabilities.
