Co-organized by Ruth Wynn Woodward Fellow Ela Przybylo and Justine Munich
Centering asexual and activist perspectives, the speakers and audience will explore the online and offline cultural production surrounding the asexuality movement, community, and asexual identities. This will be an interactive event that will begin with three 20 minute talks which will be followed by an asexuality zine-making workshop.
Justine Munich and Angie Byron - Zucchinis and Eggplants: What the Asexual Movement Can Bring to Relationship Dialogues
Cole Brown - The History of the Asexual Community
Ela Przybylo, Adam Kopczynski, and Sage Strobel - Building an Asexual Archive: Pedagogical and Research Strategies
Asexy Zines Workshop: Heather Prost
Zines constitute a fun, low-fi, queer, feminist, countercultural form of expression that has been central to the asexual movement. In this workshop we invite everyone present to take part in making page-spreads that will be compiled and shared with participants electronically post-worship in the form of an "Asexy Zine." This will also be an opportunity to come together in groups to discuss what we've learned.
Tea and coffee provided.
All are welcome.
The space is wheelchair accessible.
