We need you! Are you an autistic self-advocate, business owner, parent, professional, and lover or Love & Autism? If you are living your life in alignment with the values of Love & Autism, we need you! As you know, the idea that autistic individuals have no need or desire for relationship is a very dehumanizing and pervasive myth.
At Love & Autism, our goal is to crush the this myth and show the world that love, dating, sex, friendship and belonging are innate human desires that apply to autistic people just as much as anyone else.
Show us the value of living with authenticity. Tell us your story of struggle and strength. Share what it means to embrace love & autism.
