Activism and Autism with Gabrielle Zwi

Gabrielle Zwi

Autism can be seen as more of a children’s issue, or a cis white man’s issue. What about autistic adults? Autistic people of color? Autistic women? Autistic LGBTQ+? Learn more about activism, autism, media portrayal, music, and more with Maura Marcellino as she chats with Gabrielle Zwi.

This month can be a tough month for autistic people. Some people tell us we are not normal or complete human beings, while other people are telling us we are superheroes and autism is a superpower when it is not. Autism is not a bad word. Yes it is a disability, but it does not make us any less of a person.

Discover Mal’s Secrets

Mal Gamblin of Keep Your Secrets- Press Photo

To close out Women’s History Month this year at Alchemical Records we talked with someone who is breaking barriers in the pop-punk genre, Malerie Gamblin (Mal), the lead singer of a pop-punk band from the DMV, Keep Your Secrets. Learn more with our social media director and contributing writer, Maura Marcellino, including her favorite types of venues to play and attend shows. Growing up, Mal always wanted to be in the music industry, but did not know it was something that she could do. Before the pandemic started, Mal messaged her friend from college, Matt, to maybe try being in a pop-punk band since he was in a couple other bands like metal bands.
