Acadia Pride Hosts Ace Space Meeting

On Thursday, March 2rd, Acadia Pride hosted it’s biweekly “Ace Space” meeting for anyone that identifies on the asexual or aromantic spectrum. An asexual person is someone that doesn’t experience sexual attraction or associations, but may have an interest in sex. An aromantic person is someone who doesn’t experience romantic attraction. The event was put on to allow people who identify on the asexual or aromantic spectrum to have an open space to discuss ace and aro issues without the worry of being shut down or de-legitimized. This sort of problem can occur both within and outside the LGBT+ community quite often. People dismiss asexuality or aromanticism as being prude or, “just waiting.” Acadia Pride is working hard to make it easier for asexual and aromantic people to find each other, and to have a cohesive network to socialize within. The meetings happen on the first and third Thursday of each month from 5:00-6:00 pm in the Peer Support Centre on the West Mezzanine of the ASU. To learn more, check out Acadia PRIDE on Facebook.
