A deeper dive into the ace experience with asexual activist + educator, Yasmin Benoit. In this one, Ev’Yan speaks to Yasmin about her work as an asexual educator and experience as a Black ace person. Yasmin talks about the racism she faces within majority white asexual spaces. She also unpacks what acephobia is and offers advice to those who are nervous about coming out as Ace because of the abuse they’ll face. And a sweet moment during the conversation: Yasmin talks about the joys of being asexual, which is something that is often missing in these conversations about asexuality. Then, Ev’Yan closes us out with a meditation to help us tap into our sensual selves on our own terms.
