Our Ace Hub is dedicated to celebrating, raising awareness, and advocating for ace identities.
‘Ace’ is an umbrella term used specifically to describe a lack of, varying, or occasional experiences of sexual attraction. This encompasses asexual people as well as those who identify as demisexual, grey ace, and other ace-spec identities. Asexual people who experience romantic attraction might also use terms such as gay, bi, lesbian, straight and queer in conjunction with asexual to describe the direction of their romantic attraction.
Ace people have always been part of the LGBTQ+ community, but are often erased and ignored.
At Stonewall, we’re partnering with ace activist Yasmin Benoit on the Ace Project, a research initiative that aims to build a picture of ace communities’ experiences, needs and priorities for change, with a focus on employment, healthcare and higher education.
Check out the content below from ace creators, exploring topics such as ace erasure and community gatekeeping.
