One Response to Linkspam: October 30th, 2015

  1. Just a note on the Ace Inclusion Guides for High Schools – due to an unfortunate oversight (on my part), the kits did not adequately acknowledge a number of the individuals who worked with us and/or advised us during their creation. I’m working to correct that now, and so Asexual Outreach will be updating the kits with that information in about two weeks.
