A while back, I signed up for a thing my campus queer group does where they have people go into classrooms and related situations and answer questions from the standpoint of a Real Live gay/bi/trans/etc. person. Today was my first panel ever.

It was actually a lot of fun! The class was very polite and did not ask the Dreaded Masturbation Question, and I got a lot of questions directed specifically at me. Besides which, I got thanked personally by three or four people for talking about asexuality, which was kind of awesome.

I'm also working on setting up a panel-type thing for Asexual Awareness Week here. Out of curiosity, anyone in travelling distance of Athens interested in showing up and answering questions for that? I figure it's probably going to end up being just me and the other ace in said queer group, who definitely wants to be involved, but the offer to join us is open in case anyone is interested in a bit of fairly low-stress visibility.

I'd love to do something like this, if I could get advance warning so that I could arrange transportation to Athens now that I'm no longer in town. (Seriously, why is inter-city transportation in this state so horrible?)

...Maybe I could be invited to participate via Skype or something?

I honestly doubt I'll be able to arrange/afford transportation even with advance notice, now that I think about it, but I'd love to get involved in this somehow as an alum.

I'm glad your Q&A went well! It must have been nerve-wracking not knowing how people would respond.

Ah, not having the ability to drive. I hope it goes well though! Is it like a panel that'd take place at the LGBTQ club (whose name I still fail to remember)?

Maybe people on the Internet are more likely to ask the invasive questions than people in a classroom setting. Which is probably a good thing.

I had the mental image of it being at Tate (not that anything is ever just in the open at Tate, but the mind goes there) and my old professors walking in, which would be Extremely Awkward. I wish I could go. But if there's anything I could do from here, I'd be happy to help!
