Happy Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week, y'all!

This thread is to post about things happening in the aro community for/during ASAW.  There's lots of exciting things this year, it's amazing seeing how much our community has grown in the last few years!

I compiled a bunch of different things for this post on aromantic.lgbt.  This includes general info, specific events, news articles, and information about the proclamations regarding ASAW (with many links to more details for all of the things).

I will add onto this thread with some highlights, since that is more read-able on this platform than just a link to masterpost on different site. (and figured might make it easier for others to add on if I did not include a whole bunch of stuff in the intro of this thread).

So yeah, feel free to post about any things that are happening for aro week, or to elaborate about specific things mentioned if you know more details!

#AroCreatives (Feb. 21st)

  • Event for aros to share their creative works, using the aforementioned hashtag
  • Originated on and is primarily on Twitter (original link here); specifically to occur on February 21st  (presumably to try and get it trending?)

Aspec*German Team Discord & ASAW Chats

(Disclaimer: I do not understand any german myself, the link with the source is entirely in german and my description is me paraphrasing the info that has been otherwise communicated to me.  I am not able to describe it in german and do not want to blindly copy-paste stuff I do not understand, so I encourage people to help inform german speaking people they know who may be interested if possible)

  • German speaking discord server
  • They have plans for daily voicechats about aro topics
  • This is the link to more info (which is in german) along with how to join the discord server
