Ace Unconference

The Asexuality Unconference is the largest gathering of aces in the SF Bay area. Join us for for free food, friends, and great discussions!

Please note: the unConference for 2020 has been postponed indefinitely due to the current Coronavirus pandemic. The information below is from 2019.

So...what's an UnConference?

An unconference is an event where the participants set the agenda. When the day begins we will have a big, blank agenda with open rooms and time slots. Anyone will be able to suggest topics that they would like the Ace community to discuss, from gender in the ace community to sexual allies to aces in popular media.

We will have time set aside during the open session for attendees to pitch their topics with a quick summary of what they hope to talk about, but that won't be your only chance! The schedule remains open to additions all day long - Had a really good conversation that you want to continue? Feel free to make a new session on the spot and stick it in any available timeslot!

You don't need to have anything prepared to lead a session - just a topic that you are interested in facilitating a discussion around.

Please note, however, that the unConference is intended as a conversation space, not an educational 101 space. Conference attendees are not here to educate you or to answer your personal curiosity, whether it's questions about (a)sexuality, gender, or anything else. If you have questions or would like to learn more, consider instead contacting an organizer at or checking out our resources page.
