We are a community of asexual and aromantic folks in the Vancouver, British Columbia area. Come join us!
We host monthly discussion meetings at the accessible office of Qmunity (the local LGBTQIA2S+ centre), alternating Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons. These are a great venue to discuss asexuality and aromanticism with others who "get it," in a safe space.
Qmunity meets are currently on hold due to covid. However, we're hoping to have them restart in the fall.
We also host ad-hoc (usually at least semi-monthly) social get-togethers, doing everything from coffee shop meetups to escape rooms to board games to rock climbing, and more! These are great for getting to know your fellow aces and aros in a more low-key setting.
All events are cross-posted to the following places:
Hope to see you there! :)
Also of note: our events are for all ages, and we welcome people of all races, ethnicities, abilities, genders, orientations, and religions. We choose wheelchair-accessible venues wherever possible; wheelchair accessibility will be noted in the event descriptions. And finally, we try to create a fragrance-free space and ask participants to not use perfumes, cologne, essential oils, or other scented products.
If you feel so inclined, we accept donations via PayPal. The funds go towards:
Covering costs of meetups exclusively for minority populations within the ace and aro community (people of colour, disabled, genderqueer/trans/non-binary).
Covering costs associated with participating in meetups/social events for those unable to afford it.
Covering costs associated with larger group events such as Vancouver Pride, Ace Prom, etc.
