Australian Asexuals is a community organisation and advocacy group for “all asexuals and everyone under the Ace Umbrella in Australia.”
The organisation was founded by members of the Sydney asexual social group in order to represent the Australian asexual community at the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade. Since 2016, Australian Asexuals has been marching and participating in the Mardi Gras Parade.
According to Australian Aesexual’s website, “Asexuality is a sexual orientation defined by a lack of sexual attraction to any person of any gender. This has nothing to do with the person’s libido or desire to participate in sexual activities.”
Every year Ace Week is observed during the last full week of October. The week acts to highlight, educate, and raise awareness of issues facing the aesexual community.
