Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. And A+ members keep the majority of our site free for everyone. Still, 99.9% of our readers are not members. A+ membership starts at just $4/month. If you're able to, will you join A+ and keep Autostraddle here and working for everyone?

  1. The Erykah & Jill Verzuz was truly a display of sisterhood, black love, and black culture. Egos checked at the door. Total adoration for each other’s art.
