About this Event
How do we experience attraction?
What does love mean to us?
When did you realise you were ace?
This is the ace community in their own words.
Drawing upon interviews with a wide range of people across the asexual spectrum, ACE VOICES is an empowering, enriching journey through the rich multitudes of asexual, aromantic, demi and gray-a life.
With chapters spanning everything from dating, relationships and sex, to mental and emotional health, family, community and joy, the inspirational stories and personal experiences within these pages speak to aces living and loving in unique ways. Find support amongst the diverse narratives of aces sex-repulsed and sex-favourable, alongside voices exploring what it means to be black and ace, to be queer and ace, or ace and multi-partnered – and use it as a springboard for your own ace growth, or to better support the ace and ace-spectrum people in your own life.
Author Eris Young will talk about the genesis of the book and their own journey of realization, engage in conversation with host Richard Foss, and take questions from the audience, following which the book will be available for purchase and signing.
