|Aidan Zingler||Sciences, Books, Fiction, Architecture, Politics, Philosophy, Disability Culture, Accessibility, Disability Rights, Feminism, LGBQT, Disability, Technology||I am a disabled nonbinary queer person. I write science fiction, poetry, and nonfiction essays centered on either science, disability justice, accessibility, social justice, and/or worldbuilding. I also do sensitivity reads for the following topics: C-PTSD/PTSD, ADHD, Autism, Chronic Illness, Disability, Transgender, Non-binary, Asexual, Demisexual, Astronomy, Science behind world-building. I've spent a lot of my life struggling with undiagnosed ADHD and Crohns, so I've been through several traumatic periods -- I'm a survivor of conversion therapy, sexual assault, and abuse. I try hard to live a life of love, where I'm always learning and growing. Healing requires commitment and honesty, which is how I try to live out my values. My pronouns are they/them/theirs. Some of my hobbies include playing with my cat, exploring, and creating art. For example, I love to create handdrawn maps based on the topography of a planet. This can include a typical fantasy art style or it can be a more technical topographic or tectonic plate map. Some of my other projects include creating fractal art based on people's favorite memory and colors; clay runes based on constructed languages; and copy-editing short writing pieces. Due to my chronic illness, I can only work about 3 hours a day on my low-pain days. If given an accessible deadline, I am able to pace myself and focus better on doing the best job I can. It is best to collaborate with me on how best to make a project accessible for my expertise. Thanks!|
