Stephanie Silberstein, offer of Shades of Gay, seeks help in collecting stories from Asexuals who have attempted suicide or people who know Asexuals have attempted suicide. The study of Asexuality in academic circles has focused on issues that matter more to sexuals than to the community itself.

Unlike the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender communities, Asexuals only have ten years of experience to draw on and have not yet fully realized what all of those problems were. Psychiatrists may tend to view Asexuality as a part of the medical profession, but Asexuals suffer from mental illnesses and disorders just as other segments of the populations do.
