It’s Asexual Visibility Week, so I’ll take this opportunity to add my voice to the mix.
If you don’t know much about asexuality, I recommend checking out the Asexual Visibility and Education Network and reading this Huffington Post series.
For me, coming out as asexual has been much more difficult than coming out as gay. Many people don’t believe that asexuality even exists, or believe that we don’t belong in the queer community. But I have stood in solidarity with people of all identities and fought for the rights of all queer individuals.
I hope that you will do the same for me.
Increase your own understanding (I love to talk about this!) and incorporate one more perspective into your worldview. It matters more than you think - there are people everywhere, 1 in 100, dying to know that there’s a name for what they’re feeling. Dying to know they’re not broken.
