Help Spread the Word?
A week or so ago I met a nice Tumblr person who was asexual, yet had no knowledge of Tumblr’s asexual community. The reply I got to an asexual post was along the lines of “I’m not alone”. I’m sure we can all relate to that, so I’ve decided I’d like to start a comprehensive list to add to what I’ve already got going here; but for all the asexual blogs on Tumblr. I’m actually thinking two lists-...
sothesoulcontinues asked: Hi there! I'm an ace/aro Asian, and it had crossed my mind that the asexual community seemed to be lacking representation from people of color. I'm terribly glad to have found this blog and to know that an ace community consisting of people of color exists. :3

Random complaint about roleplay
I don’t know how many roleplay, but I do it a lot, and it’s frustrating for me, because I like to do certain things when I roleplay, but people always take them very sexually, which I usually do not mean. And as if that weren’t bad enough, I roleplay Homestuck, where the main characters are “Word of God” aracial, but everyone, including the creator, thinks of them as...
greenchestnuts: For Asexual Awareness Week, Elizabeth Barrette, aka ysabetwordsmith, posted a list of types of nonsexual intimacy that I found really interesting both as an asexual and as a writer: Part One Part Two Part Three Part Four Part Five
So, I was just hanging out in the AVENchat, because it’s never empty, and I wanted company and whatever. I realized, though, that I always feel like, as a part of two marginalized identities, I have to give one up to complain about the other. Like I can’t complain about the fact that everyone is being creepy with sex things at the same time that I complain because people are...
Hey so I’m Asian and asexual aromantic, or at least on the asexual/aromantic spectrum. Some time after I became more conscious of different sexual orientations, I think I’ve maybe started to question my own. At first I pretty much assumed that I was heterosexual. Maybe because that’s what society expects, and my parents expects (even though they’re pretty open minded...
nomi-malone asked: Hi there! I really enjoy reading your blog and I'm thankful that it exists, representation for us aces of color seems so limited. I'm working on getting a pinned thread for aces of color on the AVEN forums. Mainly for listing resources and being a place where people can just say hi and see that they're not the only one. I've got a few things on my list so far, but I wanted to...
holdontoworry asked: Hi, I saw in the blog description that networking was encouraged (which is great, because I'd love to have some APoC friends). How does/would that work here?

I’ve just been accepted to the Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project’s Filmmaker training program and am getting ready to start pre-production for my third film! This semi-autobiographical short film is about a cis woman coming to terms with the news that her trans boyfriend is going to start taking hormones. Though initially she does not handle the news very well, she ultimately realizes that...

asexualpocsunite: hobbitdragon: I saw the documentary (A)Sexual today. It’s about a group of asexual folks, and focuses a lot on David Jay as the world’s current best-known asexual educator. A lot of the movie is about the prejudice asexuals face and live with. But the documentary doesn’t label the coverage as coverage of prejudice and bigotry and doesn’t distinguish between “people saying...
hey new followers
This is fivelettered, one of the other mods of this blog. I forget if I ended up with another one or not. Submissions are open, as I want this to be an outlet for other folks more than anything. Thanks for following!
Queer and asexual?
Okay, so I’ve been silent on this issue, as it is basically bound to stoke angry fires from some people, and as this is a space for APOC, I’m not here to argue about some other mess that it seems a lot of white queer/ace folk do. I made this blog to focus on the marginalization APOC face directly, and I haven’t heard many folk who identify as APOC bring up issues of claiming a...

On being Black and Asexual in a White Society:...
[I wrote this a while ago (June 1st), and it appeared in the tags before but I finally decided to submit it here!] Alright. So I’ve been thinking about things lately. Most about being black and being asexual in a white society. Excuse my looking at some of this from an art history perspective, considering how I’m stronger in that then… I don’t know… “regular history.” More under the cut...

Does asexuality fall under the queer umbrella? →
we’re still having this discussion, apparently…:| important to note: asexuals are auto-white to the author, it seems. opinions?
Hey, I’m an asexual of ‘colour’, just thought I’d throw that out there, since it can seem lonely at times. I’m half black half white, but I don’t really identify as either. I grew up with the white side of my family, so I relate more there, but since I’m not actually white I don’t really fit in there either (I mean, with white society, I do fit in...
anyone feel like nobody takes you seriously...
metapianycist asked: Is this blog still active?
Sorry I haven’t been around/posting, but I’ve been coming up on spring break and with the death of calloutqueen, I have been a bit overwhelmed. Still feel free to submit things and I will get to them ASAP. <3, fivelettered
My Experiences as an Ace and a Mixed POC
I like to link the two together, because coming to terms with both of them have had great similarities for me. I am a mixed POC. I am 3/4 black and 1/4 white. My grandfather on my mother’s side was (was because he’s dead now and did the year I was born) a white Portuguese man, his wife a black Vincentian. My father’s parents are both black Vincentians. (Vincentians is the term...

Thank you so much for supporting my little blog. :3 please remember to submit your stories! anything about your personal experience being ace, your interactions with the ace community, or really, any of your thoughts/poems/stories about ace-dom. I would love to hear them, as I am one little person who usually keeps to her lonesome about asexual communities. you can press the button on our blog...
Aromantic woman of color
I’m not asexual BUT I am aromantic. I think a lot of aromantic people can identify with asexual people in terms of experiences in dealing with romantics and sexual people. If any of you ever just want to talk or vent, feel free to visit my page. It’s buriedamor.tumblr.com I’m Afrcian-American and I don’t know about YOU but it seems like a lot of the black people where I...
amethystlavenderphthaloblue asked: I'm a black heteromantic demi-gray, nice to be here! It's so good to see PoC visibility in the asexual spectrum. Peace and Cake lovelies =)
d-e-a-d-buddhist-deactivated201 asked: Whoa, pretty fresh blog. Mind sharing with us who you are and what's going on with you? I wrote quite a bit over at "buddha had a pen!s". I may repeat myself if I were to submit. But I'll try to keep up and produce fresh ideas and perspective; especially since my orientation--err, identification--has been shifting over the past 2 years. At this point, I identify as queer, demi,...
At 188 followers, I think I need some. Send me an email over at firstname.lastname@example.org and hopefully you can bring some fresh newness to this blog and we can work together to make the most of it.
meltydolls asked: Wow thank you for making this blog . I'm an Asian asexual and I hardly know any PoC aces xD
ace-exy asked: Brown, ace & proud as heck!
How long have you ID’d as a part of the asexual spectrum? How did you learn about asexuality?
vicious8itches asked: Thank you so much for making this blog! I sometimes feel so alone as an ace of color, and it's nice to see otherwise.
that-misery-chick asked: Hiiii! I'm black and asexual, I thought I was the only one too! ;p
wow y’all. I’m honored! send us some stuff!
misandradentata-deactivated2012 asked: What are somethings that might be offensive or politically incorrect towards asexuals? I don't want to offend anyone :)
theshotgunopera asked: Heylo! :) I was pretty sure I was the only mixed race person in the universe who was ace so I'm happy to find you guys ^_^ - excuse the message from my mental health blog - don't seem to be able to do it from a secondary one. :(
Hi there! I’m your main mod fivelettered here. Thanks for following us! I made this tumblr after I decided to fully embrace the idea of being a grey-a/demisexual (something I’ve thought I was for a year or so) and going on AVEN. When I finished making my account, I realized that most of these people were probably white. I also noticed that in the past, most of the people...
