VOL. 2, ISSUE 4: THINKING ATTRACTION

The Asexual is looking for submissions of written and visual work that capture attraction from angles which are unique or relatively unexplored. This may or may not involve thinking about attraction through a non-sexual and/or non-romantic lens, perhaps more carefully considering aesthetic, emotional, intellectual, platonic, sensual, and other ways of experiencing attraction. How may thinking attraction urge us to explore and challenge how society defines gender roles and categories, sexual identity, love, intimacy, human connection? Who gets to be “attractive” and what does it mean? How can we express attraction differently? What are the implications of this? How does queerness intersect with attraction? For example, submissions may be a personal narrative capturing your unique experiences with attraction, looking at historical or contemporary example(s) that encourage us to think differently about attraction, exploring how you and/or society sees your attractivity through artwork, or be done in an infinite other ways.
