Happy Pride Month!
On today’s show, we revisit our conversation with Dylan Alter, an advocate for ADHD awareness and the founder of NeuroQueer.org, a community that supports adults who are LGBTQ+ and neurodiverse. Dylan shares their personal journey, starting from a decade-long struggle with depression to finally being diagnosed with ADHD. They discuss how ADHD intersects with the queer experience, highlighting the parallel challenges of navigating identities in a world that may not understand or accommodate their needs.
Dylan does a great job of walking through the similarities between ADHD and the Queer experience, emphasizing the significance of creating inclusive spaces where individuals can find understanding, compassion, and a sense of home. Dylan’s dedication to building this community stems from a deep-rooted desire to facilitate empathy and empower others, ultimately strengthening the collective bond of the community.
Dylan Alter is the founder of NeuroQueer.org and is also an ADHD coach, working with both the non-profit and in his own private practice AlternativeADHD.com. He is non-binary, neurodivergent and has Jewish and Choctaw background.
