Are You Pumped? Our 14th Birthday A+ Ask-Us-Anything IS NOW

Autostraddle's turning 14 this week. That's a lot of years on the internet for an indie queer publication for women and trans people. We're celebrating this queer space that was built by us, for us, and no one's gotten rid of us yet!

Today, we're thanking the readers who've kept us here, for everyone who needs us, with an Ask-Us-Anything for our A+ members (pssst that's YOU)!

Have you ever wondered:

How DID Autostraddle get its name?
Are any of us single?
Who's a top and who's a bottom around here?
Who's on board for starting a queer commune in the woods?
What's our go-to for potlucks?
Which of us actually believe in astrology?

Get in here, ask away, and let's celebrate still being here, still being queer, after...

You've Reached A+ Content!

Autostraddle cannot survive without reader support. That's why we have our A+ Member program and A+ content like this, as thanks to readers like you who keep Autostraddle here for our whole community. Will you join A+?

A+ members keep this site majority free-to-read, so sometimes we have bonus content for members as thanks! A+ membership starts at just $4/month or $30/year. If you can, will you join? You get access to bonus content like this post, insider information, behind-the-scenes laughs, and the singular satisfaction of knowing you’re helping to pay it forward for other readers and that you're keeping this bastion of queerness on the internet here for everyone.

99% of our readers do not support. That means that less than 1% of our readers are keeping this site running. Will YOU be one of the people who helps to keep this indie queer media site here for everyone?

We don't need one person to do it all, we need many people each doing a part. Every member makes a difference!
