VIDEO: A+ Membership Comment Contest Winners Announced!

Hey there apple cider donuts! It’s time to announce the winners of our A+ Membership Comment Contest. A couple weeks ago we announced our first A+ Membership contest. The rules were this: comment on the original post the thing in school or life or work that you would give yourself an A+ in before September 15th, then stick around and keep on commenting! Additionally, we upped the stakes so for every six new members we signed up since the contest, we gave away another Bronze membership. In total today we are giving away 1 Silver Membership and 6 Bronze Memberships!

I compiled a list of all of you who followed through, stuck them in a witch’s hat (as you do) and made you this video!

If your name was called, then email me (chelsey [at] autostraddle [dot] com) for instructions on how to sign up for your new A+ Membership!

Thank you to everyone who participated! It was great to see all the amazing things you’re all so ace at, and we hope you keep bringing your unique voices and opinions to the table. Creating and sustaining a community of humans like yourselves is what matters most to us, and we’re all so glad you’re around.

Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We need to raise $175k in the next 2 weeks — or we won't make it to Pride. And a world without Autostraddle would be a loss on so many levels. Help us keep this indie queer media boat afloat! Every dollar helps.

Go to our Fundraiser!

  1. …okay so I had two watch this three times before I could believe that my name had been called. I think it was my name. I think I know my name. Unless someone else has my name… it was my name. Okay wow. Doing the thing where you grin into your hands and sort of vibrate from side to side because you’re excited (unless I’m the only one that does that?) It’s making my earrings swing around in a very interesting way. Also I’m rambling. I ramble when I’m happy. Congratulations to the other winners and congratulations to the non-winners because you guys are awesome and talented at things and deserve an A+.
