14 amazing gifts to help you celebrate Aromantic Awareness Week
This week (February 19-25) marks Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week which aims to inform others about aromantic spectrum identities.
Aromanticism is an orientation that describes people whose experience of romance is disconnected from societal expectations.
This is often due to aromantics experiencing little to no romantic attraction, or sometimes feeling repulsed by, or uninterested in romantic relationships.
It typically takes place after Valentine’s Day as way for those in the community who have difficulties to find a space for themselves on that global day, to come together and celebrate their own unique experiences.
The week was first recognized from in November 2014, under the name Aromantic Awareness Week and in 2015, it was moved to late February, as Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week to be more inclusive of all arospec identities.
If you identify as aromantic and want to celebrate that by flying the flag with pride, which is typically green, white, grey and black then you can get some amazing merch featuring the flag colours.
