While I quite busy at the moment, I had to include this website since I just now stumbled upon it! The project is based in Italy and Spain, which may be why it fell through the cracks for me, but I just had to feature it on this blog!
The Asexuals Project is “an ongoing multimedia web-doc created by the photographer and journalist Laia Abril.” This is a great journalist piece that really helps with asexuality visibility. I hope it continues to grow in popularity in the U.S.!
Also, check out their Facebook page!
I will try to post a few more items later this week. Happy reading!

Here is a recent article, “Prejudice Against ‘Group X’ (Asexuals)” by Gordon Hodson and posted on AVEN Digest Oc.t 8, which I think would quite interesting to follow up on, as Hodson mentions near the end of his article. He also lists some good references and further readings at the bottom of the page, which includes two of Bogaert’s articles. I will be following up with a review of Bogaert’s book as soon as I finish it. I purchased the Kindle edition for about $28.
I also found a Bundlr page: An Introduction to Asexuality which has links to some good references, especially for “101” materials. Just had to share!
