Questions from the A+ Inbox were taking up such an enormous portion of the A+ Insider that we've decided to dedicate an entire post to answering them every month instead! We think this will be a lot of fun for everybody in the whole family. We have included as many as we can. We love you, your hair looks fantastic today!
A-CAMP, MERCH, BUSINESS AND TECHNICAL CONCERNS
Hi! Are the hard femme tees ever making a comeback on the merch site?
Sarah: Beautiful person, I'm sorry — no. They are not. But I support you in letting your low-key Hard Femme heart shine with our new Femme tee with a hard-pointed triangle! I'd order a size down, they're roomy!
Heyyyyy the flashing hearts are cute in your merch ad, but totally an accessibility issue!!!!!! Can you refrain from using flashing/gif images on the homepage?
Sarah: Hi there! I'm sorry these weren't accessible—as soon as we realized this we asked the client to provide non-blinking ads and switched them over!
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 helpful readers like you to support the site 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 Autostraddle.com 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.
