A+ Members: Jumpstart Holiday Shopping With 20% Off Autostraddle Merch

Hello! If you're an Autostraddle Plus member, you're well aware of the fact that we are very in need of money at this time. So we're stocking the Autostraddle Store with all kinds of new stuff for the holiday season that we're sure everybody will fall desperately in love with and feel compelled by forces larger then ourselves to purchase, en masse, for everybody they've ever known or loved or maybe even for themselves. Anyhow, you can look forward to that new merch rolling in circa Thanksgiving.

But just because we're getting new stuff doesn't mean there aren't tons of classic and also-relatively-new items in the merch store right now that you perhaps have been craving with deep animal hunger! Maybe you look at your girlfriend or partner or best friend or barista and think "damn, that person really needs a Gender Traitor t-shirt." Well wow!!! What a great day for you!!

This is one of the 3-4 posts we publish each month just for A+ members. Why? Well, because...

We Need Help

It's do or die for us now: our community-funded publication is facing serious budget shortfalls and increasing competition for talent and advertising from new corporate-owned LGBTQ+ media properties. 95% of our income comes from YOU, our readers, and we need 522 new A+ members by the end of the year if we have any hope of surviving into 2019.

Autostraddle Plus is a way for helpful readers like you to support the site for as little as $4 a month, and in return get a peek behind the curtain of Autostraddle with posts like this one. Best of all, you're helping us keep Autostraddle.com free for everybody — free of cost, free from pop-up and pre-roll advertisements, 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, creating work that changes lives and impacts communities.

Make a lot of good people very happy: join A+ today!
