QSN is delighted to welcome Dr Wenn Lawson for a talk on autism, sexuality and gender dysphoria. He will offer research findings, personal anecdotes and strategies on understanding and coping with how autism affects experiences of sexuality and gender, with a focus on the high instances of gender dysphoria within the autism population.

All are welcome! 

The room is fully accessible but please email mara.gold@classics.ox.ac.uk in advance if you have any specific requirements. 

The event will be followed by an informal meet-up for members of the LGBTQIA+ community on the autism spectrum. Details will be posted in advance on Facebook
