My name is Kit Mead. I am an Autistic, queer, non-binary person with mental health disabilities and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). I like cats, writing, and coffee.
I am a disability rights advocate, both at my job and elsewhere. Posts here, published essays, and my guest blog posts on other sites are my own. The views expressed in my work do not represent either the Maryland Coalition for Inclusive Education (MCIE) or the Autistic Women & Nonbinary Network (AWN Network).
I write about injustice, historical contexts for ableism such as eugenics, policy issues affecting disabled people, and my intersecting identities.
The blog also contains resource pages with collections of websites, articles, blog posts, and more on many topics. It also has links to my social media pages, and my various other projects.
