Learn More Series: “A” is for Asexual Liberation: Centering Ace & Aro Identities and Creating a Movement

Despite our societal obsession with sex, sexual attraction and desire are not experienced by all and exist on a spectrum. Over the past 20 years, the asexual and aromantic (or ace and aro) communities have gained visibility and awareness thanks to leaders like David Jay, an asexual activist, and Angela Chen, a journalist and acclaimed asexual author. Whether you want to learn more about the “A” in LGBTQIA+ or identify as part of the ace and aro community, we invite you to engage in dialogue with these two powerhouses.

This event originally took place on Thursday, November 10, 2022 and was co-sponsored by the LGBTQIA+ Center for Faculty & Staff.

This event is part of BU Diversity & Inclusion’s (BU D&I) Learn More Series, which explores a single topic of social importance through events, discussions, and programs throughout the year— this year, BU D&I is exploring LGBTQIA+ Identity and Experiences.
