Ash and Monica use TikTok to support and educate over 130,000 teens daily. Our TikTok account includes videos on a wide variety of LGBTQIA issues, as well as support and education about autism. In addition to our videos, we go LIVE on TikTok to help support and educate our community in real time. We also answer every DM, allowing people to ask questions or seek support in private.
This year, Monica and Ash wrote an LGBTQIA inclusive sex education book for teens. We gathered almost a thousand questions from around the world in our anonymous question box, and answered every one of them in our book. Our goal was to both improve on the general sex education in this country, as well as to answer all the questions teens actually have about sex. We hope to create a similar book answering people's questions about autism.
We are relying on the support of our donors to fund the creation of lesson plans on autism as well as the LGBTQIA community. We believe education is the first step to acceptance and understanding. With enough support, we hope to also offer our time to teachers in order to better equip them to handle these topics.
Ash and Monica host a weekly podcast, The Normalizers, available on almost all streaming services. In our podcast we talk on a personal level about how being queer and autistic affects us personally, as individuals, as a family, and as a community. We discuss mental health issues, as well as relevant legal actions and current events in the world. Summer will be joining us to talk more personally about being autistic and transgender.
