Today’s Autistic Moment: Neuroqueer: Another Coming Out with guest Nick Walker

October 1, 2023

Today's Autistic Moment Logo

October 11th is National Coming Out Day for LGBTQIA+ people.  There is another group of people coming out that needs to be recognized for who we are and celebrated. According to Nick Walker, the author of Neuroqueer Heresies: Notes on the Neurodiversity Paradigm, Autistic Empowerment, and Postnormal Possibilities being Neurodivergent “means having a mind that functions in ways which diverge significantly from the dominant societal standards of “normal.” It is from definitions like this that we get the word, Neuroqueer.  Nick Walker comes on Today’s Autistic Moment to talk about what Neuroqueer is and why it is important that we be recognized as coming out as our own unique people.
