Asexual Awareness Week is held annually in late October as a time of education and awareness around asexual, demisexual and grey-asexual issues and experiences. It is a national event and began in 2011. On 2011, events were put on through the Asexual Association in collaboration with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Resource Center.
