AWN in Partnership with the National LGBTQ Task Force Release Trans Autistic Healthcare Guide

The Autistic Women & Nonbinary Network & The National LGBTQ Task Force are excited to share a brand new guide for trans autistic people called Before You Go: Know Your Rights & What to Expect at the Doctor and in the Hospital.

This guide will help our trans and autistic community members know better what to expect when going to doctors or hospitals, understand rights and responsibilities & strategize for safety planning, effective communication, accommodations, and more.

Join AWN and the National LGBTQ Task Force for a live watch party on Wednesday October 28th at 8:00 PM Eastern. A panel of autistic trans advocates will discuss access to healthcare, health disparities, and advocacy strategies to challenge ableism and anti-trans discrimination in health care settings. Reserve your tickets (free admission) on EventBrite.
