The Autistic Women & Nonbinary Network and the National LGBTQ Task Force hosted a panel with Kayley Whalen, Finn Gardiner, and Noor Pervez, with Victoria M. Rodríguez-Roldán moderating, about autistic trans access to healthcare in October 2020.
The Autistic Women & Nonbinary Network and 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, and strategize for safety planning, effective communication, accommodations, and more.
We hosted a live watch party of a panel of autistic trans advocates discussing autistic trans people’s access to healthcare, health disparities, and advocacy strategies to challenge ableism and anti-trans discrimination in health care settings.
Our event included introductory remarks by Victoria Kirby York (National LGBTQ Task Force), Sharon daVanport (Autistic Women & Nonbinary Network), and Lydia X. Z. Brown (Autistic Women & Nonbinary Network).
