It seems like we (and the White House) just celebrated the Transgender Day of Visibility, but International Asexual Day (the “A” in LGBTQIA+) is just around the corner. Here’s a little graphic put together by @victoriabarronart that explains the ACE Spectrum and some more ACE identities, along with their related flags.

You can be greysexual and rarely experience sexual attraction. Or you can be quoisexual, meaning you’re unsure whether you experience sexual attraction. Caedsexuals were previously allosexuals who are now asexual due to past trauma. And then there are freysexuals, who are the opposite of demisexuals and find that their sexual attraction dissipates once a deep emotional bond occurs. Aceflux fluctuates across the ACE Spectrum.

Barro’s actually getting ratio’d pretty hard in the replies because what harm does it do him, when it helps so many people to identify themselves. If you’re aegosexual, you’re happy to know that you’re not the only one.

How are they going to work these flags into the Progressive Pride flag, though, which already includes people of color, trans people, intersex people, and sex workers?

If asexuals are included in LGBTQIA+, and they are, they’re not getting nearly the attention the trans community is generating.
