Autism, gender and sexuality conference.- Leeds, UK

May 17

£195 – £295
In this brand new, one-day conference, we explore the relationships between autism, gender, and sexuality.
Evidence suggests that there is a greater proportion of autistic people with gender dysphoria than among the general public. (Heylens G. et al, 2018) Also, that many autistic people identity as LGBTQI+ and that these identities may differ and fluctuate over a lifetime.

Why is there a high prevalence of gender and sexual orientation diversity amongst autistic people? What specific challenges do autistic LGBTQI+ individuals face? How can autistic people best be supported in exploring their sexual and gender identity?

Attendees will hear personal insight, reports of best practice, have the opportunity to put their questions to the experts and contribute to discussions.
