The asexual community finds its voice in Hong Kong, and Rev. Bingo Allison wants to normalize gender and identity for children in the United Kingdom.

Asexual Community In Hong Kong Finds Its Voice

Three early-20s individuals talk about their mutual disinterest in sex while surrounded by condoms and sex toys.

Yumi, Kaya, and PK recollect hearing that they would grow intrigued about sex and that interest in sexual activity frequently rose in college, a setting long regarded as one for trying new things. The trio, however, strongly disagrees. 

According to Kaya, PK, and Yumi, when they discovered the idea of asexuality, no other phrase adequately captured their mental condition.

A-lephants is a division of the Chinese University of Hong Kong student organization Saan Sing Sex and Gender Concern Group, which discusses and spreads awareness of different sex and gender-related topics. A-lephants collaborated with PrideLab to plan a two-day display and workshop.

“We progressed from talking about lesbians and gays to discussing LGBTI+ and many more. Every time a new English letter was added was because someone showed up. Members of those sexual minorities came out and made themselves visible,” said Kenn Chan, the creative director of PrideLabs, to Hong Kong Free Press.

Non-Binary Priest In UK Hopes To Normalize Gender And Identity For Children

According to Fox News, a non-binary gender-queer Anglican clergyman in the United Kingdom wants to use his position as a cleric to "normalize" such conduct in young people.

"I try to get involved in, not just in my religious work but outside it, with the local secular LGBT youth groups," said Rev. Bingo Allison, a Church of England priest in the Diocese of Liverpool who identifies as gender-queer and uses "they/them" pronouns.

During a late-night study of Genesis 1:27, which describes how God created humanity male and female, Allison — who asserts to be the first non-binary gender-queer priest in England's established church — also claimed to have uncovered a scriptural justification for gender fluidity.

"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them," reads the verse, which Allison maintained expresses "maleness to femaleness" instead of men and women.

Allison described the revelation as "a deepening spiritual experience" by which God "was guiding me into this new truth about myself."
