My Life as a Gay Autistic Trans Woman
Being LGBT and having autism is actually fairly common and yet often misinterpreted. This groundbreaking firsthand account uses personal experiences from birth to late diagnosis to explore this connection, and the nuances of both gender identity and ASD.
Looking at everyday struggles faced by the author, such as learning feminine presentation through observation of subtle cues, issues around sensory processing, socially difficult situations exacerbated by gender identity, and coming out as trans during an autistic meltdown, this book gives a unique insight into the links between autism, sexuality, and gender.
