AVENues: PRIDE Special - Summer 2017

Recommended Posts

ThinkNotVanilla

Hello AVENites! :aven:

 

The AVENues Newsletter Editorial Team and I are delighted to present to you the Summer 2017 edition of our quarterly newsletter, placing a particular focus on PRIDE season! We've adopted a new look too, so if you have any feedback, suggestions or content submissions, please (as always) reach out to the Team at newsletter@asexuality.org or avenues.submissions@gmail.com, or comment on this thread.

 

Below you'll find this edition's preface and the links to grab your Ace fix:

This issue of AVENues [download locally for the best experience] is all about PRIDE!! We wanted to know if you have attended a Pride event, and how you work for asexual activism. The number of responses that we received was so incredible that we made a whole issue full of your answers!

 

We at AVENues are so happy to see so many people representing their orientations. Sometimes it can be difficult to show others how you really feel about your sexual/romantic/gender orientations. It can be quite frightening to open up to others in that way. I think that's what makes Pride events helpful. You can see so many other people out there, just like you, marching for acceptance and visibility. However you feel about yourself and your orientations, know that you are certainly not alone. There are multitudes of other aces out there marching with you!

 

Also in this issue, we have part 2 of "The L-ade tree" by Blue Ice-Tea. (See our previous issue for part 1.) We have several great poems in the Open Mic section. Our interview is on sea-lemon, one of my favorite people on AVEN.

 

In case you haven't noticed, AVENues will be moving to a quarterly publication, where we will put out new issues every 3 months. This issue is for July/August/September, and our next issue will be for October/November/December. This will give us more time to collect content and work on layouts. (By the way, did you all notice our AWESOME NEW LAYOUT?) 

 

Best of luck to those going back to school! See you next issue!
