We are a safe and friendly social environment for those who identify or are questioning whether they might be on the asexual and/or aromantic spectrum(s), who are partners with someone who does, or who are just plain curious or supportive, to meet, hang out, chat, enjoy company, and feel part of a community.
People of all abilities, religions, sexualities, ethnicities and genders welcome as long as you respect other members and their identities. We try to keep things accessible, but some regular events will require ability to use stairs. Please keep your main profile picture for this group family-friendly.
We welcome suggestions for new meetups! New locations, new timings, new activities... you name it. Please contact the organiser with your suggestions and we'll see if we can make it happen! We're also happy to make you an organiser so you can put on events - please contact the organiser if you would like to join our friendly group of volunteer organisers.
Please RSVP to meetups if you intend to come so that the organiser/host knows who to expect. RSVPs usually close a day or two before the event, and may close early if there is a limit on attendees. Please change your RSVP and send a message if you find you can't make it.
Please don't come to a meetup if you haven't RSVP'd. This is especially important for walks and museum meetups, where it is not possible to join the group after a certain time.
Code of Conduct
The London Asexual and Aromantic Spectrum Meetup is dedicated to providing a harassment-free community for everyone, regardless of sex, sexual orientation, romantic orientation, attitude towards sexual activity, attitude towards romantic activity, gender identity or expression, disability, physical appearance, age, body size, ethnicity, nationality, or religious beliefs. We do not tolerate harassment of community members in any form. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the community at the discretion of the organisers.
Harassment includes offensive verbal or written comments related to sex, sexual orientation, romantic orientation, attitude towards sexual activity, attitude towards romantic activity, gender identity or expression, disability, physical appearance, age, body size, ethnicity, nationality, or religious beliefs, deliberate intimidation, threats, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Community members asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Researchers and media representatives are also subject to the anti-harassment policy.
If a community member engages in harassing behavior, the organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the community. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an organiser immediately.
