My experience with Asexuality – I accepted my being Ace and came out a
little over a year ago. I questioned for a good four years before
that, especially due to having been diagnosed with hormone issues. But
looking back over my life, I’ve always been Ace. I was Ace before
having hormone issues. I’ve been Ace. I just didn’t know it. Accepting
that I was Ace made so many things make sense. And it was so very
good. I wish I had known so much earlier though. It would have made
high school, college, and the beginning of my current relationship so
much easier.

My intersectional identity – I’m Asexual, Demiromantic, Questioning
(just heteroromantic or more? The demi part makes it hard to tell),
polyamorous, disabled, christian.

Ace Pride – I really do love being Ace. It made so much sense and
everything just became better. I am very happy with this part of me
and now get very angry at anyone who tries to gatekeep that or tell me
that I’m not/can’t be Ace. Hell, I’m so proud of being Ace and
Demiromantic that I made pride hearts to put on my punk battle vest.
Relationships – I have two wonderful male partners. My amazing husband
and my amazing boyfriend. They both also have other partners. Neither
of them are Ace but they both accept for me for me and it’s wonderful
and I love them.
