A collection of resources about and for Ace identifying people.
Note: The Japanese ace community is strongest on Twitter. オフ会 / meetups are often setup on the Japanese Twitter event site TwiPla and circulated around Twitter weeks to months before they’re held. With the way Twitter functions, there is no one link or site to give to people hoping to connect with Japanese aces. It’s best to just search the #Aセクシャル or #アセクシャル tags on Twitter if one wants to connect with Japanese aces.
