Diversity & Inclusion programs that don’t include Neurodiversity are already OBSOLETE

Lyric Rivera, an Autistic self-advocate from Texas, runs the the internationally recognized neurodiversity lifestyle blog Neurodivergent Rebel.

They appear wearing a black leather jacket, grey New Orleans shirt, and dark jeans, sitting confidently in a futuristic space ship, with caution banners on the walls behind them. Lyric is wearing neon orange and red eyeliner that glow under the cool lights of the “spaceship” that is actually a movie theater in a Nature & Science Center.

Neurodivergent Rebel

Neurodivergent Rebel opened their blog 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.
