Welcome to GayYA’s Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week series!
In honor of Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week, we’re featuring posts from aromantic and aro-spec contributors on various issues surrounding aromantic representation in YA. We have an AWESOME line up of contributors and posts, and we’re so excited to share them with you all!
The Awareness Week series are something we’ve started doing for all of the LGBTQIA+ Awareness Weeks throughout the year. Though we hope to include everyone on our site at all times, we’ve found that dedicating a specific and concentrated space to a community to talk about the different ways their identity relates to YA can produce phenomenal results.
During this year’s AAW series, we’ve got topics ranging from why aromantic representation is important, to personal accounts of what it’s like to be an aromantic teenager, to how to approach writing aromantic characters, and more!
So now, let the series begin!
