‘Of course, I was at first … I didn’t come out as bisexual, but the whole thing of, “It could be a phase,” but I shut that down very fast with my parents where I was like, “No, it’s not.” Yeah, they’re very accepting and I’m very fortunate my extended family is too. I feel like a really good advice mostly to other people with autism, my fellow autistics, and that would be to know that your autism does not in any way invalidate your experiences of sexuality, gender or romantic attraction. It’s perfectly normal and fine to also be on the A spectrum or the aromantic spectrum and be autistic, and that doesn’t make you any less valid. But yeah, there’s space in the community for you to be able to express yourself.’ – Harley Mahon, 2018
