Welcome to the new contributors!

You may recall that last month we put out a call for new contributors.  I’m excited to announce that we’re adding three new contributors!  Their profiles are below.

Sara K. is an aromantic asexual from California who has previously lived in Taiwan. She blogs at the notes which do not fit, has previously been a contributor at Manga Bookshelf, and has written guest posts for Hacking Chinese. She enjoys reading, travel, live theatre, learning languages, and gardening.

Chrysocolla Town (or CT for short) is a chilean nerd who posts about ace history and the spanish-language ace community at her blog, where one can also find resources on local groups and ace research. She also has an spanglish Tumblr @chrysocollatown. She is asexual and her romantic orientation is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. She’s currently the admin of the Facebook group Asexuales Chile and manages the related Fanpage and Tumblr.

Astarlia is a manic pixie dream kitten, though this is not nearly as fun as it sounds. Her super power is enthusing people into following their dreams, but the downside is this also works on her and she has chronic volunteerism. She only identified as ace later in life despite having many asexual friends, because… well she is a bit slow like that sometimes. She is a passionate reader of young adult fiction, mental health and disability advocacy, and running events for nerds, because nerds are the best people <3.

Sara K. has in fact already published an article in her capacity as a contributor, but perhaps people missed it, given her history of contributing many guest articles.

This is also an appropriate time to mention that Sciatrix and Smrf have stepped down.  Sciatrix was a part of The Asexual Agenda since its founding in 2012, which now leaves me as the last founding member.  When contributors step down, it’s often to move onto other worthwhile things, and I wish both of them luck in whatever they do.

About Siggy

Siggy is a physics grad student in the U.S. He is gay gray-A, and makes amateur attempts at asexual activism. His interests include godlessness, scientific skepticism, and math. While not working or blogging, he plays video and board games with his boyfriend, and folds colored squares.

    I’m really excited about the new contributors and all their unique perspectives! Oh and I had missed that the Unwanted Arranged Marriage post was no longer categorized as a “Guest Post”, congrats Sara K.! I also will continue to appreciate the old writings of Sciatrix and Smrf as well so many others, as most of the things explored in those posts still end up seeming very relevant to my life in new ways as my life progresses! Thank you both for your time here.

    Welcome, and thank you to all contributors who put so much work into the posts here. It means a lot to me to have a go-to place to find thoughtful reading on asexuality.
