Description

Written by autistic trans people from around the world, this vital and intimate collection of personal essays reveals the struggles and joys of living at the intersection of neurodivergence and gender diversity.

Weaving memories, poems and first-person narratives together, these stories showcase experiences of coming out, college and university life, accessing healthcare, physical transition, friendships and relationships, sexuality, pregnancy, parenting, and late life self-discovery, to reveal a rich and varied tapestry of life lived on the spectrums.

With humour and personal insight, this anthology is essential reading for autistic trans people, and the professionals supporting them, as well as anyone interested in the nuances of autism and gender identity.

Reviews

'This beautifully written collection of autistic and gender intersectional experiences is challenging, heartbreaking, emotive and mind blowing. There is one theme: My autistic experience of gender and sexuality is valid. Personally, I relate so well to the various experiences echoed in the book. The intersectionalilty of neurodivergence and gender difference leads to a life unforetold and it's time these voices were heard, understood and accommodated.'
