She collaborates with filmmakers and studios in creating representations of Black, disabled, and neurodivergent communities that are authentic, inclusive, nuanced, and respectful. After learning she’s autistic with ADHD, Diane founded Autastic.com which provides resources and community to thousands of late-identified autistic adults, holds some of the only spaces dedicated to autistic people of colour, and is the only resource of its size founded by a woman of colour.
