Hey weirdos! Get a plate of cheese fries and get ready to read this special edition of the A+ Bee!
Happy Mean Girls day! Although it is no longer on Netflix, it will stream forever and ever in our hearts.
We're ramping up for quite a few exciting issues in the coming month which we can't wait to share with you! Don't forget to submit your column ideas and suggestions to the A+ Bee tumblr. Our community is full of smart interesting humans who know a million more things than we do, and we want you to pitch us things straight from your smart brains!
You can also download the PDF version of this Bee and hold it in your real life hands, which I can attest is more exciting.
We are so obsessed with you,
Chelsey and Grace...
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 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.
Make a lot of good people very happy: join A+ today!
