A is for Asexual, Agender, Aromantic

February 11, 2015

Yesterday, GLAAD launched #GotYourBack, a campaign that empowers LGBT people and their allies to speak out in support of their LGBT friends, family, and coworkers. As we work to create a world where everyone can live the life they love -- free of discrimination and bias -- it's critical to boost acceptance of LGBT people, not just among non-LGBT folks, but also among members of our own community. 

And that includes increasing acceptance of and being good allies to the Asexual, Agender, and Aromantic community. 

Let us say without equivocation, the 'A' in LGBTQIA represents millions of Asexual, Agender, and Aromantic people, who are far too often left out of the conversation about acceptance. It was never, ever our intention to suggest otherwise, and we apologize. 

Part of being a good ally is learning how and when to do better for those people you support. For us, that means making sure the Asexual, Agender, and Aromantic community knows we've #GotYourBack.
