What If The Only Allies We Know Are Some Internet Cats?

Every fundraiser, we try to have a Straight People Day to encourage, well, straight people to give because they should! This year, we wanted to focus on some of our allies, people who've supported with a little roundtable. And, well, sometimes getting work done in the Autostraddle Slack is A Mood.

Nicole: Hello @channel I put this in #roundtables-n-calls channel but also want to put it here!! We have a very strange 👽 occurrence 🛸 on our hands today — a call to put the voices of straight people on this very site! We are planning this for Straight People Day during the upcoming fundraiser!! I am here if you have any questions!! More information in the call which is also in this doc.

Why are we doing this? In the hope that this post will appeal to and encourage straight people to donate to us on and after Straight People Day. Thank you so much for your help!! 💓

Carmen: This is so cute!! I'm still not over how cute it is. I love it.
