About

Asexuals do not feel sexual attraction. Asexuals romantics might feel romance and platonic affection but not sexual desire. Asexuals aromantics feel neither. The first community of “out” asexuals coalesced in the early 21st century, but struggles to deal with prejudices similar to that levelled against other sexual minorities. Accused of disease or denial, many asexual now hope to increase visibility and knowledge of their sexuality.

 

The Asexual Project is an ongoing multimedia web-doc created by the photographer and journalist Laia Abril.

 

The project portrays and gives voice to a whole spectrum of this sexual orientation, aiming to shed some light on a little-known community and to create a visual-creative-informative platform that encourages engagement.

Participate

I’m Asexual and I want to be part of the project.

We want to hear your story. Listen your opinions. Let you denounce stereotypes and prejudices. Share what it is to be an asexual.
 
Since the project is ongoing, we’re happy to have you joint it!
 
We just came back from New York and we’re currently based between Italy and Spain, so contact us to find out where we’ll be next, or check our regular callings at our Facebook page or AVEN Forum.
 
Eventually, your testimony will join the asexualsproject.com platform, as it might be featured in international media.
 
This project is supported by David Jay and AVEN Team.
