LGBTQIA and People’s Library by Indian Aces [March 29, Delhi]: Registrations Open

About Indian Aces

Indian Aces started in 2014 as a self/non-funded collective of, for, and by ace (asexual) and aspec (asexual spectrum) people from and in India. Over the years, it has grown into a movement that is multiple award-winning, grant-winning, non-profit, volunteer-led initiative with both online and offline presence across Indian and beyond, that has grown beyond asexuality to include hard-hitting research, advocacy, workshops and events on gender, sexuality, diversity and LGBTQIA++.

About the Event

Do something unique! This pioneer educational event is an attempt to bridge the gap between the LGBTQIA+ community members and the non-LGBT+ folk, who often do not get to understand each other in full capacity simply because of a lack of safe spaces to mingle in and mix freely.

Unlike most other LGBT+ events, this event is not centred around speeches, or performances, or a stage and an audience setting. Instead, we’ll all be indulging in some mind-bending activities, playing games, and breaking ice, before the participant-listeners sit down to have a heart-to-heart with all the diverse LGBT++ story-sharers. The aim is to onboard more allies by seeing our similarities and differences that go beyond our gender and sexual identity and enable the participants to see each other as whole complete humans, regardless of which side of the fence we belong to.

For the non-LGBT+ folk applying as listeners

This event attempts to be your one chance to have a deeply personal conversation with strangers from the LGBTQIA+ spectrum who’re offering to share their authentic selves with you. It’s an opportunity for you to see people as people, and hear about their lived experiences. There’s also a plethora of other components to the events that aim to shatter all related stereotypes in your mind and help you understand where they come from.

For the LGBTQIA++ folk applying as story-sharers

You help create a safe space for ‘cis-het’, and/or questioning people to come up and talk to you about the gender/sexual identity you represent, and ask you curious questions about these difficult topics without the fear of judgment or a backlash. You enable them to see how human we all are, regardless of our gender/sexuality differences. You will be contributing in bringing non-LGBT+ folk onboard the LGBT+ cause and develop more allies! This is also a chance for you to mark yourself as an ally to the Indian Aces (asexual) community.
