Hello A+ member! What a day it is! It's a day where we can all hop on the A+ Member Pop-Up Discord Server! We try to do this extra thing during fundraisers as thanks to our A+ members who sustain us all year long and so that new A+ members can meet each other! Thank you so much for hopping on. It's always a hoot and a half!

But first, I want to make sure you don't miss our special event! Mark your calenders for the Senior Staff Hang this very Friday October 15th at 5pm PST / 8pm EST. That's 5pm Los Angeles time if you want to throw it into a time converter. Just be on the server at that time to participate!

A+ starts at just $4 a month and we’re asking you to consider joining! We’re fundraising right now to fill the gap between our expected income and our costs through January 2022, and every new A+ membership or upgrade counts toward our fundraising goal.

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 support from readers like you keeps the majority of our site free for everyone. Still, 99.9% of our readers do not support. Autostraddle is fundraising right now to keep our site funded through January 2022. Will you join our community of readers in helping to keep us around?
