What we're about

Vancouvenites: Asexuals and Aromantics from Vancouver BC and the Lower Mainland.

We have two types of meetups: discussion + social.

Discussion meetups are generally held monthly, downtown at Qmunity http://qmunity.ca/ on Friday nights or Saturday afternoons. This is a safe space to discuss topics around asexuality with others who understand. The format is: Everyone shows up and gets seated in a big circle, we do a round of introductions, including gathering any topics people would like to talk about. We then split off into smaller groups to discuss those things, with a switch in the middle if people want to join a different topic mid-way through. Then we reconvene as a larger group and discuss things we learned, and end with a larger group discussion, and finally a round of "what worked well / suggestions for next time." It's also a potluck so people bring food/snacks/desserts to share with others, and that gets snacked on periodically.

Social meetups are held on a more ad-hoc basis, as cool opportunities come up. For example: meeting at a coffee shop to chat, escape rooms, rock climbing, holding parties around special events (Valoween, Ace Prom), the occasional group road trip. There tends to not be a lot of discussion at these around asexuality; it's more about making friends and doing fun things together. Members are encouraged to suggest and/or schedule social meetups of their own, as well!
