Becoming an A-Camp Partner
Autostraddle has been hosting A-Camp, an queer adult camp retreat for LGBTQ women since 2012. Drawing inspiration from traditional camps as well as conferences and queer parties, A-Camp has a packed back-to-back schedule of amazing programming (i.e.– Feminist Beer History or ‘Bitches Brew’, the QTPOC Speakeasy, Queer Astrology 101, Destigmatize Your Size, Hogwarts Trivia, Shibari Rope Bondage, etc.) and evening programming featuring musicians and comedians, including celesbians like Cameron Esposito. It’s been a transformative and inspiring experience for the thousands of women who’ve had a chance to attend one of our eight events.
There are a couple of ways to support A-Camp and become one of our sponsors–
- Gifts–Your brand or organization donates products and/or gifts that we pack in our A-Camp gift bags–one for every camper. In exchange we provide some sweet partnership perks that include your ads, products and logo being marketed throughout our A-Camp materials (programs & banners), as well as shoutouts on our social media pages.
- Donate a Campership! Want to really connect with our audience? How about sending one lucky human who doesn’t have the means to come to A-Camp on behalf of your brand? This is by far the best way to reach and engage with our community. In addition to getting the perks listed above, we’ll also have one of our writers create a sponsored contest that asks our community to engage with your brand. More Facebook likes? Feedback on your products? The possibilities are endless. Email sarah [at] autostraddle.com to learn more about sponsoring a Campership.
If you’d like to collaborate with us, contact Sarah Sarwar at sarah [at] autostraddle.com. Please note that all inquiries should include the name of your brand, specific criteria on what you’re looking to accomplish, and links to your online presence, including relevant social media pages.
We look forward to working with you!
