The First Time Autistics Were Gathered | #AutisticHistory

autisticsgather

As we gather here together as autistics also, perhaps we can pause a moment to reflect there was a time, not that long ago, when autistics were not able to gather explicitly as autistics, a time when we first gathered to be studied, a time when we were gathered to be killed, and a realisation that this is our time to shine in history as we could not beforehand. The first successful human rights movement of the 21st century, our task.
