The April 2019 Carnival of Aros was hosted by Aromantic Ruminations, on the topic of Coming Out and/ or Being Out as Aromantic Spectrum.
Unfortunately, they were unable to create a wrap-up post at the end of the month, so we’ll be doing our best to gather up all those entries here. If you wrote or have seen any entries not yet on this list, please let us know! I unfortunately do not have access to any links that were emailed to ask-an-aro, so this list is mostly based on anything that was publically tagged. We will continue to update it if we stumble across any additional entries.
