What does it mean to be queerly autistic and proud? | Erin Ekins | School Diversity Week



Erin Ekins has created this free online masterclass on what it means to be “queerly autistic and proud” for pupils aged 14 to 18, as part of Just Like Us’ School Diversity Week celebrations.

School Diversity Week is happening 21-25 June and will see a range of free masterclasses taking place online (http://www.justlikeus.org/masterclasses), organised by Just Like Us, the LGBT+ young people’s charity.

Primary schools, secondary schools and colleges can sign up to take part in School Diversity Week (http://www.justlikeus.org/school-diversity-week), which is a celebration of LGBT+ equality and seeks to improve the lives of LGBT+ young people who right now are disproportionately struggling with mental health, tension at home and feeling less safe in school (https://www.justlikeus.org/single-post/lgbt-pupils-feel-far-less-safe-at-school-than-their-peers).

Join Erin on Thursday 24 June at 12:30-13:20 for the premiere of her School Diversity Week masterclass, titled ‘What does it mean to be queerly autistic and proud?’

Erink Ekins (she/her) is the author of ‘Queerly Autistic: The Ultimate Guide for LGBTQIA+ Teens on the Spectrum’, exploring what it’s like to be LGBT+ and autistic.
