Lyric Rivera, an Autistic self-advocate from Texas, runs the the internationally recognized neurodiversity lifestyle blog Neurodivergent Rebel.
Neurodivergent Rebel was opened in 2016, as a way to introduce people unfamiliar with autism to neurodiversity. The blog, which is sometimes released in written format and also via YouTube video, explores the ideology of neurodiversity and the creative expressions of autistic people. Riveras’ blog pushes for acceptance of neurological differences and respect for the autonomy of neurodivergent people.
Lyric is also known as the pioneer of the #AskingAutistics hashtag, which is often accompanied by a short question about everyday autistic experiences. This simple hashtag connects neurodiverse people who would not otherwise have a reason to engage with each other to foster understanding of the autistic experience.

Transcript, please. Part of my neurodiverse wiring makes it very difficult to watch or listen to a vid or recording. There is speech-to-text software available to do this. I so enjoy your content, and it’s frustrating not to have diverse needs met here. Thanks for considering this need, and point of view!
Thank you – this is in the works but my helper hasn’t gotten to the old videos yet. I’m not capable of doing them myself.
