I think I’m Ace! …Now What?

The asexual pride flag. Stripes descending horizontally in black, gray, white, and purple. Text is centered and reads “I think I’m Ace!…Now What?”

“Asexual.”

First of all I’d like to reassure you that there’s nothing wrong with being asexual.

One key thing to understand about asexuality is that it is not a choice or a disorder.

Why didn’t anyone tell me about this?

I have trauma — what if I’m not really ace?

Do I have to come out?

I’m dating someone who isn’t ace— will they still want me?

What if I’m still not sure that I’m ace?

It is okay to be ace.

I am a 28 year old gray ace advocate for asexuality and other queer identities. I also advocate for mental health and disability.
