Event description
Join us for a discussion with the Asexual community in Melbourne as we commemorate and celebrate Ace Week.

About this Event

Join us as we gather to celebrate the asexual-spectrum (ace) community and commemorate Ace Week by acknowledging the progress the Ace community has made towards greater levels of understanding, acceptance and inclusion.

Peoples of all sexual orientations, gender identities and asexual-spectrum identities are welcome and all people are encouraged to remember that this is a safe space for the Ace community to feel validated in the discussion and for non-asexual people to learn from the experiences of the community.

This event will involve an intro on asexuality covering what asexuality is, ace history, issues of ace discrimination, and a look at romantic orientations and relationships types in the ace community. This will be followed by a panel discussion of members from the Melbourne Asexual community to discuss their asexual identity and their experiences in the community with a Q&A portion at the end.

Please register with EventBrite for the purposes of venue management or contact the organiser via email for confidentiality.

The event organisers would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri of the Kulin Nation, pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge that this event takes place on stolen land. We would also like to acknowledge the elders of the Asexual and LGBTIQA+ community whose activism has led to us having the right to have this event and live authentic lives.
