How Do I Talk To My Partner About Demisexuality?


For as long as I can remember I’ve thought of myself as being strictly asexual but still seeking romantic relationships.

Corrections and Confrontations

HRT and Invalidation

Dear Queer, I am an amab trans woman. For much of my life I identified as a woman, but had to (and still have to) keep it secret from much of my family and friends in fear that they might disown me or worse. I have considered HRT but am currently very incapable of affording…

Starting a GSA

I’m starting a GSA at my school and I want to have meetings with different topics each week. I want the topics to focus more on less well-known issues like the biphobia, etc. Do you have any ideas of what I could talk about? Oh awesome, this is awesome. This is really cool of you…
