Bridget: I’m not sure about your experiences with your LGBT group, but mine have always been extremely open and supportive. They want to learn about things like the gender spectrum and asexuality. You should talk about it with the group’s leader first, and maybe he or she or xie can do some sort of day focusing on educating the members on being genderqueer. Then they can do another one about being asexual. Find some movies about these issues if you can. There are some great documentaries (Southern Comfort, TransGeneration, Middle Sexes: Redifining He and She, etc). Movie nights are always fun and often open people’s eyes even more. If you can get speakers to come, that might be a great addition. That safe space in your school should be a safe space for anyone in the LGBTQ community, not just the LGB. If you have to be the one to make it so, then be proud of yourself for paving the path for current and future genderqueer and/or asexual students.
I'm worried about coming out to my school's lgbt group that I'm asexual and genderqueer. My lgbt group rarely, if ever, discusses trans* issues let alone genderqueer issues, and I've heard many stories from other aces that their lgbt group didn't accept them for being ace. I'm worried that my school's lgbt group won't accept me and that I won't feel safe in the only safe space at my school.
