Julio Neto, the founder of the Brazilian Asexual forum, searched for an Asexual website in Africa. He did not find one. He originally put out a call for Lusophones. The call was an attempt to revitalize the languishing forums. Although his attempts to revitalize the Portuguese sites continues, he is also attempting to encourage a dialogue about Asexuality in Africa.
Asexuality in Africa, a new blog, hopes to address the lack of Asexual websites. The blog, which started only a few days ago, only has one post. Users can also subscribe to a mailing list to keep up on Asexual groups and other issues in Africa.
“Sadly, there’s no formal asexual community in any African country (as far as I know). This blog may help change this reality providing a dedicated space where people can come and share some information, experience, ideas, etc,” he wrote in an e-mail to Asexual News.
Hundreds of different languages are spoken across the continent, but Asexuality in Africa is written in English.
