The Rules for all organizers of Neurodiversity Pride Day activities are:
- No sad stories today: Pride Day is the one day for joy, where neurodivergents and their allies, don’t allow for negative stereotypes, hurtful hoaxes, curetalk or victimhood tales, by anyone. This is the one day for showing the awesomeness, acceptance and inclusion of each and all, respecting each neurominority, the day to move forward, and turn the page of the past, and revel in our shared future to come: a vision of a society equally embracing each neurotype.
- Nothing about us, without us. Pride day is organized, for each individual neurodivergent, worldwide, and for each ally witnessing the beauty of a neurodiverse future for all mankind. If you are a neurotypical individual, or an organisation serving the neurodivergent community, we expect that your team or effort will include neurodivergents in the process of celebrating the day with us, as leaders, speakers, organizers, volunteers or at the very least as guests.
- Be inclusive to all. Neurodiversity Pride Day has a specific focus of inclusion, we however also support other pride groups making good trouble, and counter societal tendencies than undermine their work. Therefore we don’t allow for discrimination based in racism, misogyny, sexism or genderrelated exclusion, sexual orientation, or discrimination based on cultural identity. Neurodiversity, means all of us, and it excludes no group of people from our shared future, therefore discrimination, to anyone, does not make any sense.
