Sign in before subscribing to A+!

Your A+ membership will:

  • Help Autostraddle thrive. A+ memberships go toward paying queer, trans, and BIPOC writers and staff. You’ll help Autostraddle pursue ambitious, relevant editorial visions, and bring you content that matters. You’ll help us pay our writers and staff fairly, and help to keep queer media independent.
  • Make sure Autostraddle stays here. The world’s a lonely place, but you can make it less so — for you, for us, and for the people who need the vulnerable, important, hilarious writing and queer community on Autostraddle, for the next person who needs a community that is unlike anywhere else in its representation of all the facets of life for queer women and non-binary people.
  • Welcome you to an insider’s club. As an Autostraddle supporter, you’ll get closer to the team, breaking A+ member-only e-news and exclusive insider content, from moving personal essays and sex diaries to interviews with exes and staff roundtables!
  • Give you direct access to the A+ Priority Contact Box! Send us your advice questions, hot tips and anything you just want to share. This is your chance to get advice from the Autostraddle team, and to gush and have feelings together!
  • And if you join at the Bronze, Silver, or Gold levels you get cool perks! Check them out below! So what are you waiting for? Join A+ today!
