We’ve been fundraising for a few weeks now, but if there was ever a time to join A+, it is this week, right now today even! For one, you can then join the A+ Discord Server that is going up this weekend and then going right back down Sunday night.
For another, there is going to be the traditional Autostraddle AMA on our birthday on March 9! You can ask us about so many topics: including but not limited to Tarot, gender, budgeting, dating, movies, pop culture, sports, D&D, sobriety and MORE!
That’s just a handful of the topics our team is experienced in and ready to talk with you about, all day from 8am PST to 8pm PST on March 9. Will you join us? If you’re not a member, will you consider joining A+ and joining us? Over 500 people have signed up for A+ since February 9, and every A+ membership counts toward our fundraising goal!
