Autism and Trans Identity

Friday, March 17, 2:30 PST on KPFA

There is a growing nexus between the autism spectrum and trans identity, which we explore as we take an in-depth look at the lives of Autistic people in the Bay Area.  Host Mark Romoser and guest Tracy Garza are both Autistic. Tracy  outlines an initiative to make San Francisco, with its large trans population, into an Autistic-friendly city.

Tracy also gives us a glimpse into a new coping technique for Autistic people.  With a discussion of the lives of Autistic people taken by caregivers, police and others.

Tracy Garza is a founding member of the local Transgender Law Center, a current member of the LGBT advisory committee of the Human Rights Commission of San Francisco and was the emcee of the recent Day of Mourning sponsored by the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network.
