We Rock the Spectrum Tucson invites autism activist and award-winning producer Marcus Boyd to discuss his experience navigating the world with an autism diagnosis.

We Rock the Spectrum is a gym for children with autism and special needs. Owner Destiny Wagner was touched by Marcus Boyd’s story.

“As the mother of a daughter with autism and microcephaly, hearing Marcus’s story made me look more optimistic about her future than I had allowed myself in a long time,” Wagner said in a press release. “I share this experience with other parents of children with special needs and adults with special needs in the community.”

Boyd was diagnosed with autism when he was 10 years old and was unable to speak until he was 13. However, those difficulties didn’t stop Boyd from winning seven Grammys, becoming an autism advocate, and leading a new clothing line.

Wagner said Boyd told her he never expected people to want to hear what he had to say or understand how he was feeling, but now he feels like his voice is heard.
