Hello!

Welcome to Autistic Pride Day

We are dedicated to celebrating and supporting the Autistic community. Driven by our vision of a just world for all, we aim to foster understanding, acceptance, and neurodiversity. We follow a clear plan to improve Autistic lives by providing free resources, raising awareness, fostering a sense of community, and creating positive change.

We chose Autistic Pride Day as a starting point for our initiative because it is a powerful moment for celebration and visibility, emphasising the importance of pride, self-acceptance, and the unique strengths our community.

An inclusive world for Autistic individuals creates a better world for all. Join us in making a difference and building a more inclusive future, because we are not equal, until we are all equal.

Autistic-Led

APD is a uniquely autistic-led initiative celebrating neurodiversity and the strengths of Autistic individuals. It empowers the Autistic community, promotes self-advocacy, and fosters a sense of pride and unity, challenging stereotypes and inspiring change.

Intersectionality

No one is ever only one thing. We embrace intersectionality, recognising that people have multiple aspects to their experiences and identities. Our initiative celebrates diversity within the autistic community, highlighting varied backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives, fostering inclusive unity.
