The Movement for Asexuality Awareness, Protection, Learning and Equality is a small organisation campaigning on behalf of asexual spectrum people in the United Kingdom. Living in a society that normalises sexual relationships and glorifies sexual attractiveness can be isolating and distressing for people that do not experience sexual attraction in the same way. We strive for legal protection from discrimination, greater awareness and comprehensive sex and relationship education for the benefit of everyone.
How maaple can help the media and journalists
Asexuality is not broadly well-known or understood among the public. Consequently, asexual spectrum people face ignorance, prejudice and discrimination. Portrayals of asexuality in the media have the power to inform, educate and reassure. We work with media professionals to ensure that asexuality is portrayed accurately and sympathetically without stereotyping.
We have also worked to help journalists connect with individuals on the asexual spectrum to be interviewed for case studies.
