Independent queer media is more important in 2020 than ever. We need lesbian and queer media that centers the voices of our community, that tells our truths, that covers relevant stories and issues — and we REFUSE to put Autostraddle behind a paywall because we want to be there for our community. In fact, A+ members are an important part of our business model because we won't put up a paywall for most of our content, we ask that, if you can, you support us in keeping this space here for everyone. That's why we occasionally have A+ Content like this — to thank our A+ Members who support Autostraddle and keep us here for everyone who needs us.

With media outlets furloughing and laying off staff or sometimes closing outright due to the global pandemic, Autostraddle has been able to hold out thanks to community members like you.

Will you be the next person to join the queer illuminati working behind the scenes to keep this space here and unapologetically GAY?

Where do A+ Member dollars go? When you pay for A+, your money becomes GAY and goes toward paying the LGBTQ humans who make Autostraddle possible. Your membership supports the kind, loving, hilarious, radical and challenging work you’re here for. Besides that, sometimes we need to mail things and pay for our server and tech support and get some pens and stuff. ABOVE ALL, A+ Members help sustain Autostraddle and our future. Plus, A+ members get a direct line to the team, their advice questions answered anonymously, hot perks and their names enshrined in our gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer hearts forever.

Did you know Cobalt Membership starts at just $1 a week? Every dollar matters when it comes to helping Autostraddle thrive, build queer community, and be here for the next person who needs us.
