The Gala Sisters: Asexuality is "Aces" with them!

The Gala Sisters: Asexuality is "Aces" with them!

Meet Rhea and Rachel - aka The Gala Sisters.  They're 'Irish Twins':  That's any siblings that are 15 months or less apart in age. They share a lot in common - almost like actual twins.  They're total besties, they both have similar interests, got married to guys who were best friends, suffered through abusive relationships, divorced, and... both are asexual.   

To the Gala Sisters, there's no sex like no sex!  Asexual folks have little to no sexual attraction to others, no sex drive - zip zero nada.   You'd think this would make them 'heroes' to the Christian Right - since they're not participating in premarital/extramarital/non-approved sex, right?  Nope.  They also face some negative bias from other members of the LGBTQIA+ community.  Listen in to find out the unique challenges that asexual folks face from every stripe of the sociopolitical spectrum.  Also find out about the different types of asexuality. Fascinating stuff.

By the way, "Aces" is what many asexual folks call themselves. :-)
