Welcome to my Patreon, lovely people!

I'm changing the focus of my posts to the history of LGBTQ+ science fiction, fantasy and horror, with the eventual goal of pulling together a book on the subject. After patrons have had a chance to read the posts, they will be made public here and crossposted to my "Out of the Past" column at Queer Sci Fi. Because I'm still gearing up, there will still be intermittent resource lists, just like last year. The levels will remain as is for the foreseeable future and proceeds will be still be donated to nonprofits unless my financial situation changes.

What kind of recommendation lists and why do you want them?
The short answer: because I’m good at collecting information and have an encyclopedic knowledge of an enormous amount of stuff. Also, my search and research skills are excellent and I’m very straight-forward about my biases and experiences so you can make your own calls on what works for you.

What do I get out of it? I plan to donate what you give me so I get to support cool organizations  and creators and I get to work on a nonfiction book that I've been contemplating for the last several years. Your lovely and much appreciated support will help me prioritize work on this. So I get your money for donations/supporting other creators and you get to read a bunch of stuff about various aspects of queer science fiction, fantasy and horror. And I get to keep to a schedule.

Nonprofits I hope to donate to in 2018:
Planned Parenthood
Southern Poverty Law Center
NAACP
ADAPT
Ultraviolet
National Center for Lesbian Rights
National Center for Transgender Equality
The Nature Conservancy
Rainbow Railroad
Center for Biological Diversity

You get everything noted above, plus sections of the book as it comes into being (bearing in mind that this will not be instantaneous and may take some time). Depending on the publication prospects for the book, this tier will likely get ebook copies of it as well, but that will be down the road apiece.
Goals
$19 of $100 per month
Some additional organizations that I'd like to fund if I can raise $100 or more each month:
Fund Club – ongoing fundraising effort for organizations focused on building diversity in IT and STEM fields ($100 is their base level for contributions)
NAACP – venerable anti-racist and intersectional oppression-fighting organization
SAGE – support and advocacy for LGBTQ+ elders
Disability Visibility Project - advocacy, #CRIPtheVote, activism, interviews, etc.
Trans Lifeline - suicide prevention and assistance
