It’s a bit late, but here it is!
Last month’s Carnival of Aces was on the topic of Asexual History, and we received some great submissions. A big thanks to everyone who submitted! If I missed an entry or got any names wrong, feel free to leave a note in the comments.
Also, as a reminder, we are always looking for more volunteers to host the carnival – there’s no one lined up yet after August, so now is a great time to volunteer. See the masterpost for details.
Without further ado, here’s all out wonderful submissions:
