When is International Asexuality Day 2023 and what does it mean?

International Asexuality Day is an annual event celebrated on April 6 to recognise and celebrate asexuality and the asexual community. The day is intended to create awareness and understanding of the full asexual spectrum — asexual, demisexual, or gray asexual — and to celebrate the diversity of sexual and romantic orientations. It is an opportunity to recognise the contributions and diverse experiences of asexual people.

Asexual folks may also experience other forms of attraction such as emotional or other attraction.
