Autistic Transgender People in Their Own Words

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

A vital, first-of-its-kind anthology of personal essays written by autistic trans people about their experiences.

This collection of personal essays examines the intersection of autism and gender diversity. Written by trans autistic people from across the globe, these stories highlight their varied experiences of coming out, college and university life, accessing healthcare, physical transition, friendships and relationships, sexuality, pregnancy, parenting, and late life self-discovery.

Weaving memories, poems and first-person narratives together, Spectrums provides a springboard for discussion around the similarities and differences of being gender diverse and on the autism spectrum, and how autistic traits manifest in tandem with gender identity.

Essential reading for anyone interested in the overlap between autism and gender identity, as well as professionals working in gender identity services and autism, this vital anthology is an enlightening look at life on the spectrums.
