Lydia X. Z. Brown (Visiting Lecturer at Tufts University) is a gender/queer and transracially/transnationally adopted East Asian autistic activist, writer, and speaker who disrupts institutional complacency everywhere from the academy to state agencies and the nonprofit-industrial complex. In collaboration with E. Ashkenazy and Morénike Giwa Onaiwu, Brown is the lead editor and visionary behind All the Weight of Our Dreams, a new anthology by autistic people of color.
