The A+ Bee, Issue One: This Is How We’ll Do It

Welcome welcome welcome! We are so excited about this and you and your hair. Are you doing something different? It looks great.

The A+ Bee was inspired by the A-Camp Bee — a daily newspaper about goings-on around camp that we distributed at May 2014 A-Camp. We liked making it sooooo much that we proposed doing something similar for A+ members, and here we are! The A+ Bee is a newspaper all about YOU, our amazing Autostraddle community!

You've Reached A+ Content!

Autostraddle cannot survive without reader support. That's why we have our A+ Member program and A+ content like this, as thanks to readers like you who keep Autostraddle here for our whole community. Will you join A+?

A+ members keep this site majority free-to-read, so sometimes we have bonus content for members as thanks! A+ membership starts at just $4/month or $30/year. If you can, will you join? You get access to bonus content like this post, insider information, behind-the-scenes laughs, and the singular satisfaction of knowing you’re helping to pay it forward for other readers and that you're keeping this bastion of queerness on the internet here for everyone.

99% of our readers do not support. That means that less than 1% of our readers are keeping this site running. Will YOU be one of the people who helps to keep this indie queer media site here for everyone?

We don't need one person to do it all, we need many people each doing a part. Every member makes a difference!
