Unpacking the term 'neuroqueer' with Mellem Rose, William Elm and Alison Bennett

In Episode 3 of QR Code, Michele Vescio unpacks the term neuroqueer - the intersection of being queer and neurodivergent - with queer folk who are on the autism spectrum; including Alison Bennett, a non-binary person, artist, lecturer, and parent; Mellem Rose, a non-binary person, advocate for queer and neurodiverse rights, and founder of Spectrum Intersections; and William Elm, a Kabi Kabi man, multi-instrumentalist, and avant-composer. They discuss neuroqueer in the context of disability, ableism, visibility, and representation, and the complex navigation of access to healthcare resources, queer spaces, and societal expectations.
