Announcement: Feeling Fast and Slow

Hi everyone, Ok, so this blog came a little bit faster than I anticipated. I have big news to share. I have just signed my contract for a non-fiction book with Jessica Kingsley Publisher’s, hopefully in bookshops and online retailers for late Spring/early Summer 2024. It’s called Feeling Fast and Slow, or, at least, that’s...

Monday 11th July 2022: New Things (I’ve got the word N*E*W*S blocked, but I think this’ll work)

Hi everyone! Yes I’ve been away for a few weeks. I’m just posting this one, because at least there’s some gay stuff in it. Then I will possibly post every other week, if I even have the time. I’m working full-time teaching English for Academic Purposes at Heriot-Watt university. I hope to do some work...

Monday 20th June 2022: Pride Season! New! Flash! Written While Tired.

Hi everyone, Hope you’re doing ok. I was trying not to write this blog as I’m a bit exhausted, but I couldn’t not. My brain wouldn’t allow me to switch off otherwise. It’s going to be a bit shorter than usual, for that reason. So today, I’m going to give the latest news! Bad Gays...

Monday 13th June 2022: Pride Season! Autistic in Queer Spaces

Hi everyone! Happy Pride once again! I hope you’re well! I had a lot of fun last Monday talking to Edinburgh University Press. However, the event at Bristol SU didn’t happen due to the organiser catching Covid – no problem at all. There’ll be others. I didn’t lose the chance to have lunch with my...

Monday 6th June 2022: Pride Season #2 – Happy Pride! How is it Going with Conversion Therapy (TLDR: FML)

Hi everyone! Happy Pride! My mum sent us this beautiful card the other day. Thanks to her and to the amazing Alice Oseman for their work on Heartstopper which I will watch/read one day, I promise. This year’s Pride Season kicks off with a catch-up on one of the most important blogs I wrote last...

Monday 16th May 2022: Call-out, Conversion Therapy and Videos

Hi everyone, Unfortunately, I’ve been too busy and tired these past two weeks to commit to my blog. Yesterday, I completely crashed. I was going to write about autism and learning disabilities but to do that justice, I need more time. I go on about resting so much, I might as well follow my own...

Monday 2nd May 2022: Section on Sectioning – Autistic and Hospitalised 2/2

Hi everyone! Hope you’re doing great. I’ve been very busy this week – good things are happening that I’m not yet ready to reveal, but trust that I will when I get the go-ahead. In the meantime, please have a look at Liam O’Dell’s excellent and ongoing work on conversion therapy and how it is...

Monday 25th April 2022: Section on Sectioning – Autistic and Hospitalised 1/2

Hi everyone, I hope you’ve had a good week. I’ve been busy, getting on with Teeming again after a long while. Also busy teaching, admin for future speaking and writing opportunities as well as, y’know, enjoying the weather. On Friday, I had to have blood taken, so the weekend was a bit of a write-off,...

Monday 18th April 2022: Autistic and on Holiday (Finally! + Photos!)

Hi everyone! So here we are! We survived our holiday. As the last blog indicated, I was planning to talk about how (not) to go on holiday when you’re autistic. Due to the sheer amount of stuff that happened in the previous 7 days, I couldn’t. Instead, you’ll get that one at a later point....

Monday 4th April 2022: Autistic and on Holiday 1/2 – THEN SOME OTHER STUFF OCCURRED!

Hi everyone, Sorry for being a bit early off the mark for this week’s blog – but since last week’s one was delayed and next week’s one is not happening I thought I’d give you a blog on the Sunday. I was going to write about holidays. You know – the nice fuzzy cuddly kind...
