Q:I was just wondering why the A in the LGBTIA stands for Ally and not Asexual? I was pretty sure that's what most other groups do...
As with the ‘Q,’ the ‘A’ in the LGBTQIA acronym has a couple of meanings. It can stand for either “Ally” or “Asexual.” UNI Proud tends to mention allies to make it known that allies are welcome, which is one of the questions we get asked most frequently.
However, since asexuality is a part of the queer spectrum, asexual-identified individuals are welcome at all our meetings, and asexuality is something we’ve discussed at many of our meetings. In fact, our next meeting is focused on asexual awareness!
Thanks for pointing this out. We’ll be sure to highlight asexuality more in the future!
