This Edition will explore 2SLGBTQIA+ Autistic identities and experiences. The acronym stands for Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning, Intersex, Asexual/aromantic and additional sexual orientations and gender identities.
In this last edition of the LifeSpans series, we are turning it over to Autistic folxs who identify as being part of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. Do you have a coming-out story you'd like to share? What does Pride mean to you as a 2SLGBTQIA+ Autistic person? How can society be more inclusive of those under the double rainbow?
Submissions can be stories, artwork, poems, recipes, jokes, resources, and more!
You don't need a formal diagnosis of autism, and you can be any age -
our youngest contributor to date was 7 years old when they sent in their

Please note that parental consent is required for youth under the age of 16.
