Being Neurodivergent & LGBT - part 1 Jorik Mol
Mar 19, 2021 Episode 11
Sarah Stephenson-Hunter

As I've spoken to more and more people who are both disabled and LGBT+ there is a theme that's arisen i.e. that of the prevalence of those who are neurodivergent  and LGBT+.  I've already touched on this in a few previous episodes but for the next two I thought I'd take a more detailed look at the issues around this.

In this first of two episodes focusing on this I speak to Jorik Mol, an autistic gay man who speaks very openly and honestly about his experiences of being both queer and neurodivergent  both in his home country of Holland and more recently living and working in the UK

We touch on a range of issues and as you might imagine Jorik has plenty to say which I'm sure will resonate with those of you who are also neurodiverse and LGBT or simply want to learn more about this topic.  

I must also advise you that there is duiscussion of issues around mental ill-health, suicide and homophobic abuse .

You can get in touch with Jorik and find out more about this work via his website www.jorikmol.com
