FREE FROM DESIRE: ASEXUAL IN THE CITY OF LOVE is the story of Aline, 34, who has never been attracted to anyone - neither sexually nor romantically. They retrace their steps through the trials and tribulations of an adolescence steeped in supercharged pop culture messaging and explores how difficult it was to realize and accept their asexuality and aromantism in a society that only talks about exactly that: love and sex. This acceptance eventually leads them to the next chapter of their adult life: having a child on their own via IVF, and redefining what family means to them. In the words of the Tribeca Audio Storytelling Competition jury, who awarded the show its top prize, “this compelling personal story has lessons and insights for anyone with a body.”

  • In their exploration, Aline discovers that asexuality is often not recognized or understood as a valid sexual orientation. Instead, it has historically been seen as a problem to be fixed or a disorder to be treated. Angela Chen, Kate Wood, and David Jay, a respected figure in asexual activism, all contribute to shedding light on this issue.
