people living under a double-rainbow...
Twainbow was formed to provide a clearinghouse of information regarding Autistic LGBTQI+ social support, the latest news , and research.
Twainbow is a portmanteau of “twain” (meaning ‘two’) and “rainbow”. Autistic individuals who are also lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender live with two rainbows in their lives: what we like to call the "double-rainbow".
Twainbow is an organization dedicated to advocacy for those under both the LGBTQI+ and autism spectrums.
