Do you know?! Did you hear? WE MADE IT TO OUR MATCH GOAL! That means we’ve unlocked $23,000 in match funds. We’ve also reached a total of $76,217, which brings us 76% to our goal! Thank you. It’s because of you.
In a time when digital resources and connection are more vital than ever — including workplaces that employ LGBTQ people sustainably — Autostraddle wants to not only keep our lights on, but ensure they’ll keep burning as brightly as possible.
Help us reach our stretch goal and you could win an Autostraddle merch package!
Our fundraiser perk super special You Need Help is here!
We hadn’t planned anything beyond our original goal, but your belief in us has taught us a new kind of hope. Today, we’re introducing a fundraising stretch goal of $25,000 intended to help bring our senior staff salaries to a more manageable place.
For the past five-ish years, I have worked in the hellish, uncertain landscape known as the media industry. I have written for well over a dozen publications. None have made me feel more valued for my work than Autostraddle.
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.
If “oh yeah I should probably join A+” has crossed your mind at some point and you’ve not taken action on it, today’s your day! We’ve got so many reasons why, including this awesome sticker sheet we’re giving out to new Bronze, Silver and Gold members!
This includes very important holiday shopping information and other ways to help us year-round. Some of the things are free and some cost money but the one and only way to find out is to open this post and then read it! xoxo
In honor of our 2-year anniversary, Bronze members will be able to access the entire archive of Silver/Gold A+ content from July 11th-15th. This would be a great time to join or renew!
We’re sending exclusive Gal Pal and Scissoring stickers (which will never appear in the Autostraddle store) to A+ members who want them, so maybe this would be a good day for you to join A+.
It’s our birthday, so we’ve got a merch discount code for you as well as ongoing updates on who won an A+ membership and why you REALLY need to get one for yourself!
Introducing Autostraddle Plus, our premium membership program!
The Birthday Bake Sale ends tomorrow, so now’s your chance to support Autostraddle’s writers, celebrate Riese’s birthday AND get some amazing cookies in your mouth!
For my birthday, I wanna give gifts to other humans: specifically, Team Autostraddle. If you donate, you’ll be giving me the best birthday ever, and I’m willing to bake you cookies or even raffle off an A-Camp campership and more!
If we lived in the 90s I would’ve made a huge scrapbook with all the cute photos you sent in from International Autostraddle Meetup Week(s), but we live in 2012 so here’s a gallery of 300+ photos instead. FYI: You are all SO CUTE.
This post aims to answer pressing questions such as, “now that the fundraising campaign is over, how long ’til we get to see the new website?” and “when is my fundraising t-shirt gonna be here???”
OMFG IT’S TIME TO MEET-UP! Find your city on the list and wash your lucky shirt.
We want to hang out. Like, a lot.
We just wanted to say a few things before taking your money and running off to a tropical island to do some offshore trading and margarita-drinking with the ladies.
