The A+ Bee Issue Twenty-Four: Y’all Ready for This?

Hi there jumping beans!

I hope you've had a splendid July and are ready for what August has in store for us. This issue will make you want to take a Gal Pal tour around some tropical shit, go back in time and go to every Pride ever with the adorable Straddlers of this here nation, and hope with all hope that the Museum from Gaydventure will be a real place one day.

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!
