The first comprehensive survival guide for LGBTQIA+ autistic teens.
In this empowering and honest guide for LGBTQIA+ autistic teens, Erin Ekins gives you all the tools you need to figure out and explore your gender identity and sexuality.
From coming out to friends and family, staying safe in relationships and practicing safe sex, through to self-care and coping with bullying, being out and about in the LGBTQIA+ community and undergoing gender transition, this book is filled with essential information, advice, support and resources to help you on your journey, and also works as a primer on all things LGBTQIA+ for non-autistic teens who are just figuring it all out.
Written by an inspirational autistic queer woman, this is a must-read for every autistic teen wanting to live their very best queer life.
'This book is going to change and save so many lives. It's a vital exploration into
autism, gender and sexuality, and is easy to understand even as it tackles difficult
topics. The intersectionality between autism and LGBTQIA+ identities has long been ignored, but Queerly Autistic not only bridges the gap but guides the reader through a world of new ideas and acceptance. A pleasure to read, and to be seen. One of the most important books in autistic literature.' - Poe Charlotte, author of 'How to Be Autistic'.
'Ekins has created an essential guide for autistic LGBTQIA+ teenagers, covering all
aspects of identity, relationships and, crucially, safety. Informative and refreshingly honest, Queerly Autistic provides a definitive and clear framework for LGBTQIA+ autistic teens navigating the highs and lows of life. Every LGBTQIA+ autistic teen needs a copy of this on their shelf.' - Lizzie Huxley-Jones, editor of Stim: An Autistic Anthology.
"A well articulated and queerly presented book, written in an accessible way for people to enjoy and learn. Erin allows the reader to take their own path into understanding more about where their particular queerness and autism intersect. An important book, reminding us that our queer community is so wonderfully diverse and vibrant."' - Fox Fisher, artist, author and film maker.
'As an autistic person who both got my autism diagnosis and came into my queerness later in life, it is hard to express the feeling of comfort there was in reading a book written for the confused queer autistic kid I was. It is also so important that Erin is an autistic author writing for autistic readers. This kind of knowledge exchange is so powerful and still far too rare.' - Kate Sauder, disability scholar and blogger.
