I was hoping someone may be able to give me some advice. I’m a hetero-romantic asexual and want to become more involved in the community near me: Victoria, Australia. But I get anxious because groups will mention the standard LGBT(QI), and Allie, so I find it daunting and confusing if I’m there as an Ace or an Ally or if I’m not meant to be there at all.
Would anyone have any advice on how to enter those groups and how I should handle gatekeepers.
Thanks for any help.”
