People who are on the Asexual and Aromantic spectrum face unique challenges in our very sexual society. Many people do not know what being Asexual or Aromantic means, never mind the full range of Ace-spectrum (A-spec) identities.
Led by members of the Ace community, this presentation will start off with an introduction to A-spec identities and move into a discussion of A-spec perspectives on consent, sexual violence and the unique ways that sexual violence and rape culture affect the A-Spec community.
This event is part of Pride Week 2020, when MacEwan University celebrates the diversity of our students, faculty and staff and supports the LGBTQ2S+ community and allies.
