Spectrum of Experiences
An online conference about the autistic, gender and sexuality spectrums
A warm welcome to our 2022 online Autism Conference.
We are here to platform the voices and explore the experiences of autistic people of marginalised genders and sexualities:
Autistic women and girls, non-binary people and transgender people; and autistic people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer.
Talks were uploaded daily Monday to Thursday between Monday 13th and Thursday 23rd June.
