AHOY! So here I am, asking ...

If you’re here you probably know my videos. Because YouTube won’t advertise on videos that are ‘explicit’ or ‘controversial’ (*raises hand*), I feel I can’t be myself on YouTube anymore AND support myself. In addition, my ‘reputation’ means I can’t get a publishing or other typical mainstream platform in the way I once believed I could.

I’m flailing a little. All I want is to keep doing what I do. This is how I like it but I need support. Hopefully you’re here because you like what I do too and you might wanna throw me a buck or two.

I’ve tried Patreon a couple times over the years and always felt a bit weird about taking money from people who want to give it. I have a lot of pride. Pride at accepting people’s support and pride when people don’t offer it. In the past I’ve taken money only when I really need it and closed my account as soon as things have got better.

But there’s nothing wrong with you liking my work and there’s nothing wrong with me accepting your support. I’d love to figure this out with you as we go if you’re willing to be part of this with me :) I know it’s a commitment but you can road test it if you’re scared (you can pull out before you're charged at the end of any month, so it's risk-free).

Please help however you can and I promise I’ll do everything I can to earn it with the best fucking art I can make. We’re here to make this work together, and we will.

Let’s do this. <3

Love,
Alex

frequently asked questions:

Q: “why per month??“

A: I did a Twitter poll asking people how they’d prefer to give and Per Month was the winner. It also works for me cos I make lots of different things (videos, music, books and more) and I know some people are only here for one thing or another; it feels unfair charging people random amounts of money at random times for random times. A general giving seems simpler.

Q: “I wanna give you bitcoin.”

A: Thank you! Wallet address: 1Ku9ZQDmCHUN1tRzmWMBzxBLoTu2ENkH2L

Q: “What if I just wanna give you one-off money now and then?”

A: You’re welcome to pledge for a month and then cancel it after the payment goes out - just do that whenever you feel able. Or take the ten pounds you have (for example) and give me £1 every month so it’s all spread out, increase/decrease as you see fit? I dunno mate, whatever makes you happy :)

Q: “how much actually helps you?“

A: everything helps :)

Q: “does Patreon accept PayPal?"

A: Yes :)
