Yasmin Benoit - Twitter

We talk a lot about sexual orientation, but we don’t talk nearly enough about romantic orientation – that’s something Yasmin Benoit is trying to change. Yasmin is an asexual and aromantic activist who is working tirelessly to make sure the world knows that not everybody experiences romantic attraction in the same way.
