WHY DID QUIET MISFITS BEGIN?
As a bereaved LGBT woman Lyndsey Pearce was struggling to find meaning in her life without her late partner. After being diagnosed autistic in 2019, and for all the professional resources and loving support she received from friends & family, there wasn’t anything available to specifically guide her through her new situation. To find new purpose from creativity, she began researching, synthesising, and writing. Her findings are located on Quiet misfits.
AUTISM IN FEMALES/MASKING/LGBT
Autism in females, social masking and LGBT is such a new area of cross over and exploration, but new information is coming out all the time. There’s still a long way to go in identifying and supporting autistic females in the neuro-typical social world to help them reach their full potential and live happy, healthy lives.

How is it even possible to be creative when you’re completely overwhelmed by the day to day, or you simply need to recharge with alone time more frequently? It’s not easy, but it’s not impossible either.
There are unique and specific challenges for people experiencing loss who don’t fit into the main stream, but there is a way through and it starts with small steps.
