New Channel 4 documentary about disfigurement

Starting tonight is a new four-part documentary named Katie: My Beautiful Friends, which hopes to challenge the way society views disfigurement.

Katie, who was facially disfigured by an acid attack in 2008, first appeared on TV in the documentary Katie: My Beautiful Face. Having grown to accept her disfigurement, she is turning her attention to helping others.

Katie: My Beautiful Friends follows Katie’s journey over the period of a year as she sets up a charity aimed at transforming the lives of those living with disfigurements, giving them the confidence to accept their abnormalities.

There seems to be a disfigurement theme on Channel 4 at the moment as this follows the series Beauty and the Beast, a show trying to change the ways of a collection of beauty-obsessed people.

Tune into Channel 4 tonight at 9pm to see Katie: My Beautiful Friends, and check out this interesting article I found about a 13-year-old boy who is proud of his facial disfigurements.
