Another month is almost over, which means now is the best time to become a patron and support your favorite creators. If you enjoy Making Queer History, consider becoming a patron and getting perks like stickers, early access to podcasts, and patron-exclusive content!
This is how we make sure everyone working hard to keep Making Queer History running smoothly gets paid fairly. That includes folks behind the scenes, guest authors, and everyone involved in contests and promos. Frankly, the project’s founder and head writer was unable to be paid this month because of lack of funding. Your support means that we can continue to pay everyone involved and make queer history accessible.
