This is the call for submissions for the March 2019 Carnival of Aces. You can find out more about the Carnival of Aces in The Asexual Agenda’s masterpost here.
The topic I have chosen is “symbols of identity.” This includes things like the black ring, the ace flag/colors and other ace-spectrum flags, and cake, as well as any other symbols that you feel are relevant. Listed below are a few ideas to inspire you, but feel free to write (or create other media) about these symbols in any way that you wish.
- Your personal feelings about any of these symbols
- Which, if any, of the symbols you incorporate into your life and how
- The function of symbols within the ace community
- How symbols of asexuality are perceived from outside the ace community
- Symbols you wish we had
- Other symbols of identity (e.g. the rainbow pride flag) in relation to asexuality
To make your submission, provide a link in the comments below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will check for submissions each weekend at a minimum, so if I haven’t responded to your submission by the end of the weekend after you submit, please resubmit! I’m also happy to host guest posts; if you’d like to make a guest post just send me an email with the contents.
I’m looking forward to reading all of your submissions. Thank you!
Controlled Abandon – your suggestion for the Carnival prompted me to write this:
If you would like to use it, then please feel free to.
That was fast! Thanks!

Do you host guest posts?
Yes, absolutely! Sorry, I should have put that in the post.

I’m gonna submit my post late. Sorry about that. It’ll be while it’s still April 1st and I’ll also post the call for submissions for the next Carnival theme hopefully while it’s April 1st.
No worries! Thanks for letting me know. I’ll hold off on posting the round up for a bit.
I see you already posted it though. Hopefully you can edit the roundup you posted to include mine when I get it up. Sorry got being late. I really wanted to be on time but I’m so rarely at home that it’s very hard to find time to blog. Lol
No, the round-up isn’t live yet. (At least I hope it isn’t! It’s supposed to be just a draft still.) I think I must have confused you with my own blog post? Which… has a better title now so that it doesn’t look like it’s supposed to be the round-up post. And I totally understand about the difficulty of finding time to blog.
(*for, not “got”) — Yes that’s exactly what confused me. 💜😅 Sorry about jumping to conclusions lol. Thanks for understanding. My post with a bunch of pictures is being written now and then I’ll read your post!

Don’t know why it took me so long to write. Sorry about that.
My submission, written on my phone (so likely a bit autocorrect ridden), is finally up! https://luvtheheaven.wordpress.com/2019/04/01/trying-to-be-less-invisible-a-symbols-of-identity-carnival-of-aces-submission/
Thanks for a topic that actually really spoke to me!
