They like to be called "the little people" or dwarfs. They know people make fun of them by calling them "midgets" or "shorty." Yet, through all the condescending stares and cruel jokes, the little people triumph by living normal lives just like everyone else. OnQ's Michael Bartley takes you to The Little People Convention where dwarfs come together as a group to share their common pain, joy, and life goals.
