Asexuality: The Overlooked Letter in the Acronym

PRIDE: CHAMPIONING LGBTQIA+ LEADERS & ALLIES

Of course love wins. But what if your sexuality is defined by an absence of sexual attraction, or you only feel lovey dovey under really specific circumstances? Cue asexuality, the often overlooked, usually misunderstood, letter in the LGBTQIA+ acronym. Writer, educator, and advocate Elle Rose explains what it is, its social and professional implications, and why it deserves more prominence in queer spaces.

Bridget Finkeldey

Elle Rose, also known online as scretladyspider, is an agender demisexual and graysexual writer, educator, and advocate. Elle wrote a tweet about Spongebob’s asexuality in 2020, and it went viral. Realizing that there was a lot of misinformation about the asexual spectrum, and being demisexual herself, she started writing a blog about demisexuality. Since then she has become something of a leader in the online asexual community, particularly concerning demisexuality and graysexuality. She has been interviewed about demisexuality by the BBC, Cosmopolitan, Healthline, The Sydney Morning Herald, Lesflicks, and the Poema podcast. She has also been a panelist for India Aces and AVEN. In 2023 she is publishing a book about demisexuality with Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
