This month on the A+cast: the seasons are turning and we're starting over with a new format and stories about people making big changes. It's our first ever THEME episode: "Starting Over." Riese talks to her mom about coming out as a lesbian later in life. Crystal and Carolyn have a conversation about getting married and immigrating to the US. Brittani talks to Orange Is The New Black writer (and Samira Wiley's girlfriend) Lauren Morelli about becoming a screenwriter, moving to LA and coming out. Alex and Sarah Croce remember the road trip that brought them across the country to start new lives. Your producer-hosts, Samara and Julia, are along for the ride.
This episode was produced by Julia Wetherell. You can listen right here or download it. Enjoy!

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. We just barely hit our goal of 3k members in 2018, and will need another 1,000 members in the next six months to make it through the summer!
Autostraddle Plus is a way for loyal readers like you to support us 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.
