Well, A Plus-ers, we DID IT, DIDN'T WE?
We got in bed with Tegan Quin, we made sure that she held Sam the Cat, we found out about her favorite flavor of La Croix, we talked about coming out, activism, music, parenting twins, and even learned that she would rearrange my bedroom if given the chance. It. Was. Great.
Check it out (if you missed it or if you just need to watch it again...) below, and join me this week for "School Hard," where I will be giving all the school-related advice I can muster. Wooooo!

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 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. 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!
