Meet Joe Parrish. He’s like any other 24-year-old political science graduate at the start of his career.

Except for one thing; he’s coming out as asexual –meaning he feels no sexual attraction – in order to fight for visibility.

If this young Bernie Sanders fan, former private in the National Guard and Harry Potter nerd wins office, it will be another step forward for sexual minorities for the USA.

GSN sat down with Joe, who is running as a Democratic candidate for Granville County and Person County in the North Carolina House of Representatives, about his campaign, the changes he’d like to see and his asexual-ish family.

Why did you want to run?...
