This podcast was recorded live at the Intersectional Infinity Summit on 3/30/2022.

Ky Kennedy is a mother, lactation consultant, author and autism advocate. After seeing a need for an autistic founded and ran organization, Ky and their sister founded Autistics Unmasked (AU). Now Ky and the rest of the team at AU are well on their way to providing educational resources to schools, employers and family members of autistic people across the nation.

During this session, we discuss:

  • Ky’s experiences as an undiagnosed autistic child and their self-diagnosis in adulthood
  • Why Ky and their sister founded AU to support BIPOC and queer autistic people
  • Some of the challenges that autistic BIPOC face in society, and how AU is addressing these challenges through educational curriculums for first responders and schools
  • The exciting work AU is doing now and planning for the future!
