Episode 5: A GAY ASPIES TALE
Nathan talks openly about his experiences being bullied. Despite feeling like an outsider, he found a connection to other through music, arts, and writing. He also talks very candidly about having Asperger's within the gay community.
"I am Nathan Mann, 21 years old, and from London. I am currently studying Writing for Performance at the Central School of Speech and Drama, and have been writing since the age of 15. So far I have written a book, articles, plays and a musical, and have had work published on the Wired4Music website (with recordings of some other work on YouTube).
"I like writing predominantly about Aspergers, mental health and LGBT issues. Other main interests include football (I’m a big Chelsea fan, life is good as a European champion!), music, politics (I’m a socialist), animals (I have one cat!), and trains (especially the London Underground and DLR). I was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome aged 7, and came out as gay in the summer of 2015."
