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!!

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?
