Grey Spectrum Social Group

Peer Social Group

Grey Spectrum Social Group is a peer group that allows for asexual (ace), aromantic (aro), and other grey spectrum identified individuals to meet and discuss a wide range of topics associated with being on the grey spectrum. The social group is open to all individuals under the Grey Spectrum including but not limited to: asexual, aromantic, demisexual, demiromantic, heteroromantic, or people questioning on the side of the Grey Spectrum. It is requested that new participants e-mail Sam Reilly-Rogers for more information before attending. The group meets weekly on Wednesdays at 6-8 p.m. Group guidelines and purpose are outlined here. 

 

Please note that Grey Spectrum Social Group is a peer group and that there is no mental health counselor or other accredited professional available at these events.

The last meeting of every month is open to allies to the Ace and Aro community. 

Social and Discussion Group Policy

All support and social group participants must be currently enrolled in classes at the University of North Florida. Special considerations will be made for college students at FSCJ, JU, or another college/university. One-time exceptions may be made for visitors by contacting Kaitlin Legg, Director, at k.legg@unf.edu at least one week prior to their preferred visit. A one-time exception is not necessarily guaranteed. 

 

The primary mission of these groups, as well as the UNF LGBT Resource Center, is to support LGBTQIA college students. Due to increasing attendance and need, the Center can no longer support community members within support and social groups. In addition to the scope of the Center’s mission, social groups must also follow safety and confidentiality agreements and safe space guidelines, which restrict most areas of service to college students and the campus community.  

 

Social Justice Framework

This group operates within a social justice and feminist framework that acknowledges the multiple identities and experiences in both dominant and non-dominant spaces that all students and community members live within. It is the responsibility of this group to seek to create a space welcoming to all people, regardless of identity, and ensure that underrepresented identities and communities – including people of color, women, transgender people, people with disabilities, poor/working class people, non-Christians, and so on - are provided access, equity and inclusion.
