Backstory to this site
This website has it's origins in the r/asexuality subreddit wiki, which I authored over the course of approximately two years with help and feedback from the community there. I decided to copy the content over to its own stand-alone website for a few different reasons.
- It allows this resource to not be associated with Reddit, and to not be affected by their arbitrary decisions.
- It can make the resource come across more legitimately, so people might be more comfortable sharing it with, say, family members.
- It gives me much more control over formatting, images, and so on.
- It allows me to offer the site's content in the confidence that visitors will not be tracked or monitored in any way.
Other Activism I do
As well as maintaining this website I also engage in some other aspec activism.
- I run the @GlasgowAce Twitter account.
- I'm working on an asexuality reference book (approx. 250 pages). It will be similar to this website but covering more topics in more depth, and in a format more suited to consuming in its entirety.
- I'm head moderator at the r/asexuality subreddit, which had almost 150k members at the close of 2021.
- I'm a member of the IAD activism group. A world-wide collaboration that runs International Asexuality Day.
- I've also successfully lobbied the Scottish Government to include a mention of asexuality in their revised guidance on their LGBTI-inclusive curriculum. I will be continuing with this angle when they start public consultations on the new revisions.
