Pushing Limits

Autism and Trans Identity

There is a growing nexus between the autism spectrum and trans identity which we’ll explore as we take an in-depth look at the lives of Autistic people in the Bay Area. Host Mark Romoser and guest Tracy Garza are both Autistic. Tracy will outline an initiative to make San Francisco, with its large trans population, into an Autistic-friendly city.

Tracy also will give us a glimpse into a new coping technique for Autistic people. Finally, the two will
talk about the lives of Autistic people taken by caregivers, police and others.

Tracy Garza is a founding member of the Transgender Law Center in San Francisco, a current member of the LGBT advisory committee of the Human Rights Commission of San Francisco and was the emcee of the recent Day of Mourning sponsored by the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network.
