About Indian Aces
Indian Aces started in 2014 as a self/non-funded collective of, for, and by ace (asexual) and acespec people from and in India. Over the years, Indian Aces has grown into a movement that is a multiple award-winning, and grant-winning, volunteer-led initiative, with both online and offline presence across India, and beyond. Asexuality.In is a community project and Humans of Queer is a Pride month project by Indian Aces.
About Humans of Queer
Humans of Queer is a Pride month project by Indian Aces in 2021 to document the average queer persons’ lives and experiences through the power of owning one’s identity and the power of storytelling. This project has expanded into an education website that hopes to be a resource centre for disseminating knowledge, imparting transferable and sustainable skills, collecting data, and conducting research for the queer community, while documenting queer persons’ lives and experiences.
