Monday 29th August 2022: Edinburgh and Beyond

Hi everybody! Yes, it’s been so very long. But it was with good reason. I needed the time to recuperate since I was also working full-time. The work was fun, the students were great, the person I worked with directly was a total hero. However, it was everything else that drained me. Instead of calling...

Announcement: Feeling Fast and Slow

Hi everyone, Ok, so this blog came a little bit faster than I anticipated. I have big news to share. I have just signed my contract for a non-fiction book with Jessica Kingsley Publisher’s, hopefully in bookshops and online retailers for late Spring/early Summer 2024. It’s called Feeling Fast and Slow, or, at least, that’s...

Monday 20th June 2022: Pride Season! New! Flash! Written While Tired.

Hi everyone, Hope you’re doing ok. I was trying not to write this blog as I’m a bit exhausted, but I couldn’t not. My brain wouldn’t allow me to switch off otherwise. It’s going to be a bit shorter than usual, for that reason. So today, I’m going to give the latest news! Bad Gays...

Monday 13th June 2022: Pride Season! Autistic in Queer Spaces

Hi everyone! Happy Pride once again! I hope you’re well! I had a lot of fun last Monday talking to Edinburgh University Press. However, the event at Bristol SU didn’t happen due to the organiser catching Covid – no problem at all. There’ll be others. I didn’t lose the chance to have lunch with my...

Monday 16th May 2022: Call-out, Conversion Therapy and Videos

Hi everyone, Unfortunately, I’ve been too busy and tired these past two weeks to commit to my blog. Yesterday, I completely crashed. I was going to write about autism and learning disabilities but to do that justice, I need more time. I go on about resting so much, I might as well follow my own...

Monday 2nd May 2022: Section on Sectioning – Autistic and Hospitalised 2/2

Hi everyone! Hope you’re doing great. I’ve been very busy this week – good things are happening that I’m not yet ready to reveal, but trust that I will when I get the go-ahead. In the meantime, please have a look at Liam O’Dell’s excellent and ongoing work on conversion therapy and how it is...

Monday 25th April 2022: Section on Sectioning – Autistic and Hospitalised 1/2

Hi everyone, I hope you’ve had a good week. I’ve been busy, getting on with Teeming again after a long while. Also busy teaching, admin for future speaking and writing opportunities as well as, y’know, enjoying the weather. On Friday, I had to have blood taken, so the weekend was a bit of a write-off,...

A picture from about 1990 where a small Jorik, dressed in bright colours, waves to the camera, as his grandmother cycles slowly back towards the farmhouse.

Monday 18th April 2022: Autistic and on Holiday (Finally! + Photos!)

Hi everyone! So here we are! We survived our holiday. As the last blog indicated, I was planning to talk about how (not) to go on holiday when you’re autistic. Due to the sheer amount of stuff that happened in the previous 7 days, I couldn’t. Instead, you’ll get that one at a later point....

Monday 4th April 2022: Autistic and on Holiday 1/2 – THEN SOME OTHER STUFF OCCURRED!

Hi everyone, Sorry for being a bit early off the mark for this week’s blog – but since last week’s one was delayed and next week’s one is not happening I thought I’d give you a blog on the Sunday. I was going to write about holidays. You know – the nice fuzzy cuddly kind...

An image with the book cover of Silverstein and Picano's The Joy of Gay Sex, but a shirtless Jorik holds two fingers over the word 'Gay' and, in post, has added 'Autistic' to it.

Monday 28th March 2022: Sex and relationships 1: Gender and Sexuality Conference + Poetry + Sex Education for Autistics

Hi everyone! Two days late, but you know. It’s fine. Also, it’s a massive blog. Look at it. I’m talking about sex today. Yes, autistic people can have sex, and incredible sex at that. We have sexual desire and we are just as likely as neurotypicals to want, need or desire sex. However, we are...
