Asexuality Awareness

AceFlag-1024x615What is asexuality?

An asexual person is someone who does not experience sexual attraction. Unlike celibacy, which people choose, asexuality is an intrinsic part of who they are. While asexuality does not make lives any worse or any better, asexual people do face a different set of challenges than most sexual people. There is considerable diversity among the asexual community; each asexual person experiences things like relationships, attraction, and arousal somewhat differently. Asexuality is just beginning to be the subject of mainstream understanding.

Asexual Awareness Week (AAW) began in 2010 as a campaign targeting the LGBT community and its leadership for greater awareness (source).

In Nova Scotia, for 2014 there was a free screening of (A)Sexual, a documentary that explores the asexual community. If you missed the screening this great documentary is also available on Netflix!
