What we're about

Asexuals and Aromantics of the Mid-Atlantic: Baltimore is a Meetup group for anyone on the asexual and/or aromantic spectrum or people who do not experience sexual and/or romantic attraction. We are a group dedicated to the enrichment of the lives of asexuals and aromantics by providing support and friendship in an open and caring environment. It is our goal to make all members feel comfortable in sharing their thoughts and experiences, and all are free to contribute as much or as little as they wish in our discussions.
This group was created as a branch group of an Ace Meetup group that is centered in Washington, DC for those who live in the Baltimore, MD area. We may do joint Meetups with the original Asexuals and Aromantics of the Mid-Atlantic group, but the idea of having this branch group is to be centered in Baltimore. We want to create and build on our ace and aro community that is here in Baltimore.

Palentine's Day Baking with Buddies- online meetup

Online event

Tired of the Valentine's Day ruckus and just want to hangout with some awesome friends and bake? Palentine's Day is the day we celebrate our friendships. So whether you are looking for making new friends, seeing old ones, and/or bring your own pal to join us. We can all bake together, either the same recipe or own recipes. (Definition of baking is up to personal choices. If it comes from a box or tube, that is ok, no judgements.) We will join together and chat and bake and have a good time. If anyone doesn't want to actually bake but does want to join for hanging out with friends new, old or somewhere in between they are also welcome.

I can share some recipes (mine are gluten free and vegan), just ask. If you have your own and want to share you can add them to the comments. Cookies, cake, bread, etc.

We will be using jitsi for video chat. Link provided to those who signup. There are breakout rooms if there are a lot of folks and we want smaller groups chats.
