Autistic and Transgender - Anna’s story

Gloriously Unready

01-05-2024 • 47 mins

There’s a lot of discussion around neurodiversity and being LGBTQ.

Many people who are gender non-conforming also have a neurodivergence such as autism and ADHD. So in this episode Josephine is talking to Anna Hayward, a counsellor specialising in supporting neurodivergent gay and gender non-conforming people. Anna herself is a gay woman and autistic. She also has gender non conforming children.

The pair look at how neurodivergent individuals may have a different understanding and experience of gender compared to neurotypical people. They also explore how best to support the neurodivergent LGBTQ people in your life

Please note: We had a few technical problems with this episode, and Anna's audio isn't as good as it would normally be, so if you're listening in the car or somewhere noisy, you might miss parts. Your best bet is to listen to this episode when you've got a quiet time and place to do so. There is, of course, a transcription that you can follow along with too if that helps

Please Note:

Everybody mentioned in this podcast series has agreed for their story to be told.

We are keeping the names of Josephine's children private.
