(Although, if you’re visiting from California, we’d understand if you don’t come back in October…) Apparently the book “All the Wrong Places” in the Bluewater Bay series has the characters attend an asexual meetup group in Seattle! Other ace-related books mentioned today: The Interface Series (which I can’t find a clear link to), although apparently only one book in this series has been published, and that book doesn’t mention asexuality explicitly. March Names The Stars, which involves some dating ace pagans.

And then, in the non-fiction category: Asexual Perspectives: 47 Ace Stories, which is a collection of interviews with ace people.

Dennis, Telegraph Dating is an online dating service that will help you find women and men like you.

We discussed possible ways to start to fix that, such as reaching out to local doctors and clinics and offering to provide information, offering to present an Asexuality 101 seminar to a local group of providers, or giving a talk at a convention.

However, I am unaware of anyone who is actively taking on a project to work on building bridges with the healthcare world.

This is not meant to be a transcript and is not necessarily even meant to be a coherent recounting of the discussion.

Privacy of group members and keeping that room a safe and open place is important to me.

In June, I attended the Berkeley Unconference and the San Francisco Pride Parade, organized by members of Asexuality SF. For an unconference, attendees bring topics they want to talk about, and the day’s schedule is organized on the spot.

They were both valuable experiences and things we should look at doing here at some point. People then break off into groups to have 45 minutes to an hour of discussion on the topic, and people are free to switch between them, if they like. I’ll pay the bills, but I’ll need as many of you as possible to show up and march.It’s still no guarantee that people will read and understand, but it’s a start. It’s new, so there might not be many people there, but there won’t be anyone there at all if there aren’t any intrepid pioneers who decide to take the first step.Someone brought up whether or not it’s appropriate to come out to a doctor or a therapist, particularly if they start bringing up sex or relationships in connection to the care they are providing. I can honestly say we have clicked in a significant way and that we are enjoying developing a new relationship together.Early days or rather should say early months but the prognosis is good.These are notes from the Seattle and Surrounding Aces Discussion Group meeting of September 9th, 2017.
