When you are autistic, you experience pretty much everything differently – including realising you might not be straight or cis.
Erin Ekins is a queer, autistic blogger who was part of the Channel 4 documentary Are You Autistic? and her blog, Queerly Autistic, has been featured on Victoria Derbyshire and Radio 5 Live. Erin focuses on autism, invisible disability and LGBTQIA+ issues from the experience of an autistic adult, engaging audiences up and down the country to raise awareness about equality, intersectionality, attitudes towards autistic people, and the importance of holding to account authorities who fail those who are autistic, disabled and LGBTQIA+.
