Kristy Forbes - I thank the universe for the autistic community - 007 Queers & Co.

    • Personal Journals

In this episode of Queers & Co., I’m joined by autism and neurodiversity support specialist, speaker, writer and creator of inTune Families, Kristy Forbes.

We chat about embracing autism as an identity and culture rather than a disorder, moving away from pathologising behaviour, the importance of being able to self-identify as neurodivergent, the deeply problematic nature of compliance therapies and radical honesty as a form of self-care.

CW: This episode contains talk of ABA and compliance therapy
