VIDEO! Getting in Bed with Kristin #5: Heartbreak with Special Guest Allison Weiss!

Last week was Valentine's Day, so of course it was a great time to do our Thursday live-hang all about HEARTBREAK... right?! If the lovebirds got Tuesday, I say the brokenhearted deserved Thursday (and their own chocolate and cookies, for the record). I was joined by the amazing Allison Weiss, who has written about a million wonderful songs all about heartbreak, and we dug into all manner of questions -- from getting over your lost love to drawing boundaries to trusting again and moooore.

Join me this Thursday in bed for advice on Coming Out (to yourself)!

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!
