“I saw Ladies in Black a few weeks ago and there’s a bit better the main girl and her mum where she’s saying she doesn’t want to be called Leslie anymore because it’s a boys name (it’s unisex but more commonly a boys name) and wants to be called Lisa. Her parents are a little dissapointed at first that she doesn’t like her name but they respect her wishes and call her Lisa, they accidentally call her Leslie sometimes but always correct themselves. Even though she’s cis I can definitely see the symbolism there. Just thought I’d share.
Also there’s a married European couple in it and they give me wicked ace vibes. There weren’t any hints or anything, they just felt ace.”

“Hi! I’m an ace bookseller, and I just wanted to let you guys know that in February a new YA novel called Immoral Code comes out, and that it has an unapologetic acearo character. It’s stated before 20 pages have even gone by. If y’all are interested, please look into getting it from your local indie store rather than Amazon!”

“I’ve recently been working on a book idea with an asexual main character, I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone and write a romance story between two ace people. I’m still coming up with ideas and wanted to see if you could post this so I could see what the community thinks? One thing I do have set in stone for the story is that it will have more of a tragic end because I’m just quite mean to my characters, but I’m open to story lines that can lead to this sort of end 😊

“Does anyone else headcanon Sora from KH as asexual?
I saw this post today and thought that it was actually a really interesting read on his character, considering he’s gone through puberty throughout the games and not shown any sexual interest so far. Wanted to see what other people think!”

“Hello! My name is Lauren Hemphill, and I’m an aro-ace writer. I’m not sure if you do this sort of thing, or if I’m crossing a line here, but I’ve written a novel for fellow aros and aces like me who want a kickass book featuring an aro-ace lead. I’m doing my best to get the word out, and I thought some of my fellows who follow this page might be interested. It also features a cast of other lgbt characters and is set in space! Which personally, I think is always fun. Here’s a link to the amazon page for preordering if you’re curious: “

“Hi! So I have a question I would like to pose to the group, anonymously, if possible. I’m still not really out to many people yet and I kind of would like to keep it that way for now, but anyway! I have a good friend of mine who is working on a TV pilot, and he wants one of the main characters to be ace. He asked me how I would like to see asexuality represented in the media, and I gave him my response, but he also asked me to open it up to as many people as I could reach so he could do a better job of representing the community as a whole. Since it’s a spectrum, he wanted to get a lot of opinions. Would it be ok if we opened a discussion in the group about ace representation in the media and what we wish we could see on screen? It’s alright if not, but I figured I would ask. I really love this page a lot and love the sense of community and safety is has created. You guys rock my socks 😊😊

“Please check out the comic Always Human on Line Webtoons!
They have an amazing lesbian relationship which is wholesome and develops amazingly, along with supporting characters who are asexual, aromantic, Agender, non binary, genderfluid and a polyarmorous relationship!

There’s always a great diversity in race, I love it, And I hope people support such authors who create wonderful stories about the LGBTQIAA community!”
