That's Ace

A new story unpacking asexuality & the importance of intersectionality within the LGBTQIA+ community

This show is part of A Queer Interrogation. Explore the season & find out more here!


"That was the first time I knew I had a crush. A sort of crush - I think a crush. Something..."


Ace, who named herself after the 80’s Doctor Who companion, has always led a sheltered life. But tonight, everything changes as she’s invited to a nightclub for the first time.

Sadly, she arrives 15 minutes early. On time is late after all. So she has to wait the whole night in this hostile new environment for her school crush, Sasha, to arrive. As Ace tries to determine whether her feelings for Sasha are romantic or platonic, she becomes increasingly aware of the preeminent focus on sex in society.

Is it love? Is it friendship? What's the difference?

This thought-provoking LGBTQIA+ story explores asexuality, attraction and the feeling of living outside societal norms.
