Fitting In As I Am

Posted on: Sun 21 Feb 2021

Eliza Thomas (pronouns: she/her) is an Adelaide based stand-up comedian, who is not afraid to upend those who don’t understand that being autistic and bisexual are faceted into her core persona.

Thomas explains further to De-Stigmatised‘s Jarad McLoughlin about coming to terms with trying to fit in, her mum’s inoffensive reaction after coming out while consuming wine and gushing over well known historical autistic figureheads, including Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla and Alan Turing.
