Happy #LGBTQHistoryMonth! Let’s make sure it’s as #intersectional as possible. #YasminBenoit

Yasmin Benoit is a a Black model, writer and activist from the UK. She came out as asexual and aromantic in 2017 and has been an activist for the ace & aro community ever since. As one of the UK’s most prominent Black lingerie and alternative models, she uses her platform to dispel myths and misconceptions surrounding ace & aro identities and started the #ThisIsWhatAsexualLooksLike campaign. She is also on a mission to bring visibility to People of color within the ace, aro and LGBTQ+ community as a whole. She worked with Asexual Visibility and Education Network and other partners to host the first asexual-themed bar at London’s Pride event and later joined AVEN’s Board of Directors. In 2019, Benoit became the first openly asexual woman to appear on the cover of a UK magazine.. #LGBTQHistory #QTPOCHistory
