The A+ Bee Issue Twenty: Going Platinum

Hi starshines! Happy May! I hope it's treating you well so far. Welcome to the 20th issue of the A+ Bee. I got you this set of fine china to commemorate this milestone in our lives.

Don't forget to submit things! You all are so great and wonderful and when you submit something to the Bee, you get to pass all your knowledge and humor and smarts onto other Straddlers! It's so fun.

Here are some things we are looking for in the next issue: Dear Sour questions, interviews with your pets, Laura and Luna FanFiction, puzzles, playlists, or anything your heart desires.

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 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!
