GET IN HERE: A+ #StaycationSpectacular Livestream and Open Thread!

Oh, hi! It's Saturday, March 14, which means we've arrived at the Autostraddle International Staycation Spectacular!

All around the world, people are hanging out inside, taking a spa day in their own bathtub, and/or eating cheese plates on the veranda. I'm going on a picnic in my living room! People are bringing pie! But that's tonight, and right now I'm right here, sitting in bed, ready to hang out, dude. 

With you!

Welcome to the A+ Staycation Spectacular Livestream and Open Thread. Me and a bunch of the greats – Rachel, Stef, Kaitlyn, KaeLyn, Carolyn, Robin, Maddie, and special guests like our pets and friends! – are gonna spend a few hours of the day staycationing with you! And then you're gonna comment right down there and tell us how great your morning and evenings are going, and also what you put on that cheese plate! Okay? Okay.

You Have Reached A+ Content!

This is one of the 3-4 posts we publish each month just for A+ members. Why? Well, because...

We Need Help

It's do or die for us now: our community-funded publication is facing serious budget shortfalls and increasing competition for talent and advertising from new corporate-owned LGBTQ+ media properties. 95% of our income comes from YOU, our readers. We just barely hit our goal of 3k members in 2018, and will need another 1,000 members in the next six months to make it through the summer!

Autostraddle Plus is a way for loyal readers like you to support us for as little as $4 a month, and in return get a peek behind the curtain of Autostraddle with posts like this one. Best of all, you're helping us keep free for everybody — free of cost, free from pop-up and pre-roll advertisements, and also free from the inevitable compromises made by sites that cater to marketers, not readers.

A+ is a sustainable way for queer people and allies to opt into a system that financially supports other queer people, creating work that changes lives and impacts communities.

Make a lot of good people very happy: join A+ today!
