VIDEO! Getting in Bed with Kristin #10: Friendship, Aghhhh!

I sure do love getting in bed with all of you wonderful people, I WILL TELL YOU WHAT. Last week we dug into friendship: making friends, losing friends, coming out to friends, and of course... the television show F•R•I•E•N•D•S. I really had to push you all to actually ask me about the television show but finally a few questions came through and now everyone knows how I feel about Ross' relationship to Carol and Susan, and also which two characters I feel best represent me. (We also got to hear from Jenny on this hard-hitting topic and it was great).

We will be convening on a SPECIAL DAY for a SPECIAL PERSON for our next episode: This Saturday, April 8, at 3pm PT Brittani Nichols will be getting in bed with me whhhhaaaaat. If you have time, you should check out the first time Brittani got in my bed so you are even more prepared for this momentous occasion. Bring all your questions, I cannot wait to see all of your faces. Well. I don't see your faces but you know what I...

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 Your Help.

This might be an awkward way to ask for it, but here goes: we know you like Autostraddle, and we like you a whole lot too. Advertisers and investors, on the other hand? Well, independently-owned politically progressive LGBTQ women's media that speaks frankly about lesbian sex isn't exactly their thing. It's do or die for us now: either we shore up enough reader support to compensate for the slowdown in ad sales and increasing competition from heavily funded new media properties, or we shut down altogether. Venture capitalists are throwing billions into properties like Vice and Buzzfeed, whose sudden interest in the viral potential of LGBT stories is severely limiting our ability to attract writers at competitive rates.

That's why we've created Autostraddle Plus. It's a way for loyal readers like you to support the site for as little as $5 a month, and in return get a peek behind the curtain of Autostraddle with posts like this one, A+ swag, podcasts, Insider "newsletters," and essays/interviews from the previously-very-hidden parts of our hearts, souls and pants. 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. With the support of readers like you, we can pay our writers, diversify our team and continue to coordinate the worldwide meet-ups that have changed so many lives.

Make a lot of good people very happy: join A+ today!
