Every Friday, we will share links to news, blogs, and anything else we find interesting.  We can’t catch everything, so you are invited to self-promote in the comments!

    I’m not aware of any homeless shelter having a policy against asexuals, LGBT or otherwise. If Coyote can find out more information, I’d love to see it.

      I don’t know of any shelters that have policies specifically against asexuals, but, just speaking from experience talking to people from RFAS who have gone to SV/DV shelters, not being anti-asexual and being asexual-friendly are quite different things. I believe Coyote is trying to find explicitly ace-friendly/ace-competent shelters.

    LGBT Youth in Indiana might be able to help him.
