Autistic Pride Day is an annual celebration that takes place on June 18th. It's a day where we get to show off and celebrate our unique autistic identity and all the amazing things we bring to the world.
The first Autistic Pride Day started in the early 2000s, and it's been growing in popularity ever since. The day is all about promoting acceptance and understanding of neurodiversity, and challenging the idea that autism is something that needs to be cured.
Autistic Pride Day is really important because it gives us a chance to come together as a community, share our experiences, and support each other. We celebrate with all kinds of awesome events, like rallies, marches, and art exhibitions, which help raise awareness about autism and promote inclusion of autistic people in society.
Australia's first Autistic Pride Day Symposium is set to take place in Melbourne on June 18th, 2022. The event will be organised by social enterprise Just Gold in collaboration with Myriad Kofkin Global, Invictus Health, Community Capacity Builders, the Centre for Autistic Social Entrepreuneurship, and the Australian Institute for Diversity in Mental Health and aims to celebrate the diversity and strengths of the Autistic community, while also raising awareness of the issues and challenges faced by Autistic individuals.
The Symposium will feature a range of speakers, including Autistic individuals, researchers, and advocates, who will share their experiences and insights on various topics related to Autism.
Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with other Autistic individuals, allies, and supporters, promoting networking and community building. Overall, the Autistic Pride Day Symposium is expected to be an inspiring and successful event that will promote acceptance, understanding, and inclusion of Autistic individuals in Australia.
We're joining the global "Every Day" campaign for Autistic Pride Day 2023, celebrating daily experiences and achievements of the Autistic community. The campaign encourages recognition of the rich diversity within the Autistic community, promoting a more inclusive society.
