What we’re about

The New England Aces (NEA) is a group for asexual-spectrum (ace) and aromantic-spectrum (aro) individuals and allies that provides support in an open and affirming environment, builds community based on friendship and respect, and promotes awareness of ace and aro identities in the New England area through outreach, trainings, and collaboration with community partners.

NEA was formed in 2010 as a small Boston-based group and has since grown to more than 1,200 members throughout New England. In addition to hosting regular social and community-building events, NEA members have presented at conferences and workshops across the country and organized Boston’s first Asexual Awareness Week in October 2013.

NEA is committed to values of inclusivity, intersectionality, and social justice. We welcome members of diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, races, religions, nationalities, socioeconomic backgrounds, and abilities. Please read our safe space guidelines here:
