Well golly gosh it's a whole new podcast situation just for you! We're calling it A+ Inbox LIVE! and it's a short, casual little show that's all about you but also us.

Here's the deal with A+ Inbox LIVE!: I snagged three questions/comments that you weirdos left for us in the Priority Inbox, then Riese, Rachel, Heather, Yvonne and I got on Skype to talk about them. It was fun and we learned a lot about ourselves and the world! Eh, really just about ourselves, I guess. The best part of A+ Inbox LIVE! is that we're gonna do it again in a few days! And then again, and again. We'll bring on special guests. We'll ask Stef to make more musics for us (she put this intro tune together in a single brief afternoon and it's probably the greatest thing ever). And um, we'll also bring on YOU! How will we do that? VOICEMAIL. That's right, not only do you get a Priority Inbox with your A+ membership, now you'll also get a Priority Voicemail, where you...

You Have Reached A+ Content!

98% of the content on this website is available to everybody for free, but this is one of the 1-2 posts we publish each month just for Silver and Gold A+ members. We also publish an additional 2-3 posts a month available to all A+ members (Bronze, Silver and Gold). WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? WHY ARE WE DOING THIS? Well, because...

We Need Your Help.

This might be an awkward way to ask for it, but here goes: we know you like Autostraddle, and we like you a whole lot too. Advertisers and investors, on the other hand? Well, independently-owned politically progressive LGBTQ women's media isn't exactly their thing. It's do or die for us now: either we shore up enough reader support to compensate for the slowdown in ad sales and increasing competition from corporate-owned LGBTQ media, or we shut down altogether.

That's why we've created Autostraddle Plus. It's a way for loyal readers like you to support the site for as little as $5 a month, and in return get a peek behind the curtain of Autostraddle with posts like this one, A+ swag, podcasts, Insider "newsletters," and essays/interviews from the previously-very-hidden parts of our hearts, souls and pants. Best of all, you're helping us keep Autostraddle.com free for everybody — free of cost, and also free from the inevitable compromises made by sites that cater to marketers, not readers.

A+ is a sustainable way for queer people and allies to opt into a system that financially supports other queer people. With the support of readers like you, we can pay our writers, diversify our team and continue to coordinate the worldwide meet-ups that have changed so many lives.

Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. And A+ members keep the majority of our site free for everyone. Still, 99.9% of our readers are not members. A+ membership starts at just $4/month. If you're able to, will you join A+ and keep Autostraddle here and working for everyone?

Laneia is the Executive Editor and founding member of Autostraddle, and you're the reason she's here.
