For the past few WorldPrides there has been an asexuality conference in the host city, and this year it will be in NYC!

On Saturday June 29th, we will host the next Ace & Aro Conference in the Financial District of New York City. The conference will be organized by Aces NYC (acesnyc.org) and AVEN (asexuality.org).

We're fundraising for rental space, food, invited guest speakers, and general conference setup materials. Financial donations as well as frequent flyer miles for out-of-town invited speakers, extra space for out-of-town conference attendees to stay in, and ride shares would also be incredibly helpful. Please reach out to acemeetupsnyc@gmail.com to donate miles, extra places to stay, and shared rides.

The conference will be open to all asexual and aromantic spectrum people, including (but not limited to) those who identify as: asexual, grey-ace, demisexual, aromantic, grey-aro, demi-aro, queer, questioning, or some combination of these identities. Friends and allies are also welcome!
