We Need Help: Autostraddle Is Raising Money!

We’ve spent years — our whole lives, sometimes, it seems like — talking about what our community could look like if we weren’t spending all our time and energy on just staying alive, a feeling that queer and trans people know all too well. With your help, we’re excited to find out what thriving looks like.

Brooklyn, NY 2019-07-10: Saturn Returned – a happy hour gathering for queer women age 30+

Saturn Returned is a new happy hour gathering for queer women age 30 and up. Meet people, make friends, chat with a cutie, be home by 10pm.

The first Saturn Returned was a big success, so we’re back and ready to turn up! This time we’re got Robinette Jones on the turntables, and we’re raffling off a sexy goodie bag courtesy of Babeland! All raffle proceeds go to the Yellowhammer Abortion Fund.

New York offers a variety of queer events, but it can be hard to find a party that starts before 10pm — most of us have work in the morning and need our beauty rest. When you do get out to the party, you typically encounter a gaggle of fresh-faced adorable gays who don’t remember when MTV played music videos. Bless them, but it can be alienating for us more seasoned folks.

This party is for any queer-identified women (and queer-ID’d folks who date us) over the age of 30! That includes lesbian, bi, pan, queer, trans, non-binary, gender expansive, butch, femme, etc and anywhere in between.
