What is asexuality?

Asexuality is another sexuality in the LGBTQIAP+ spectrum. People who are asexual experience little or no sexual attraction to others. Asexual people, or “aces,” often identify somewhere on a spectrum that includes their emotional, spiritual and romantic attraction to other people. (Want to explore your sexuality?
