AUREA stands for Aromantic-spectrum Union for Recognition, Education, and Advocacy
AUREA’s goal is to assist in the growth of the aromantic community and advocate for its interests through furthering recognition and education internationally. To do so we assemble information about aromanticism, including vocabulary, research, online resources, links to in-person groups, and printable educational materials. We aim to be a contact point for researchers and media looking to explore the aromantic experiences. Our news feed informs about the ongoing developments in the community.
Like any good origin story, AUREA began with a burst of proactivity. Many aromantic people have personal blogs, but the lack of response and traction our thoughts receive have made us feel as though we exist in vacuum. It was a thought provoking post from one such personal blog that launched this organization.
AUREA is a volunteer-run initiative. Our aim is to be representatives for the aromantic community. This website is a means for people who aren’t or may be aromantic to get insight into aromanticism from aromantics. AUREA is here to do research, administration, and organization of all our resources.
