TransChat: Neurodiversity

#TransChat is a monthly twitter chat on the last Sunday of every month for trans/gender diverse people, hosted by the Ygender twitter account. We’ll be kicking off at 6pm AEST and this month we’re talking about neurodiversity!

The questions will be:

  • Q0. Introduce yourself however you like

  • Q1. Does being neurodivergent impact your gender identity?

  • Q2. Does being neurodivergent impact on your ability to express/present your gender? How so?

  • .Q3 Do you find that queer/trans spaces are ableist? Do you find that neurodivergent spaces are transphobic? How do you navigate that?

  • Q4. What could queer spaces do to be inclusive and anti-ableist?

  • Q5. Which neurodivergent activists or resources by neurodivergent people would you recommend to someone who wants to learn more about neurodivergence, ableism, and how they can be supportive?

If you respond to a question such as Q1, your tweet should follow this format: 

“A1 [your message] #TransChat”.

If your tweets contain potentially triggering content, please include appropriate specific CWs!

Remember to use the #TransChat hashtag when you tweet so others can follow the discussion, and don’t forget to capitalise both words in the hashtag - it makes it easier to read and we want our online spaces to be accessible! 

You can see the whole discussion by following #TransChat (or searching it), and setting the page to ‘Latest’. This is also a great way to check out past chats!

Looking forward to talking to you!
