We’ve made it so far with our Patreon fundraiser! In less that 30 days, we have raised over $5,000, almost 1/2 of the way to our $12,000 per month goal and we are so grateful. That is incredible but it is still not enough to keep our doors open. If we do not meet our Patreon goals by November 1st we will close.

We’re LA’s ONLY LGBTQIA+ coffee shop and community space and we’re in danger of immediately closing. We’ve become a critical part of the Los Angeles queer community, providing vital services and programming that helps reduce isolation and promotes greater connectivity within our community. In our 1st year of retail business, coming out of slow summer and still paying off capital improvement costs, our cash reserves have been completely depleted. We are asking Los Angeles community members and LGBTIQIA+ beings around the globe to consider donating to our monthly Patreon in order to help keep Cuties open and support the many services we provide beyond a normal coffee shop. Do you enjoy this newsletter? Do you love our Highlighter video series? Do you dig our events? All of that will be gone if we do not reach our goals.

We’re also asking you to share our Patreon and our campaign video far and wide. Share it on your social media accounts, email it to your friends, send it to your co-workers, your family members. Call up people you know who are allies to the LGBTQIA+ community and ask them to contribute, tell them why this space is needed and why they need to support us. Let people in other states know about us! Email our Patreon info to people you know in other countries. Tweet at your favorite celebrities: tag them in posts, make cute videos and directly ask them to help YOU save Cuties!

Have you done all of this already? Great! We’re asking you to do it again!

Cuties saves lives. Help us save Cuties!

Goals
$8,626 of $12,000 per month
We have until November 1st to reach out $12,000/month goal to keep Cuties open! After a slow summer and paying off capital improvement costs our cash reserves are gone. If we reach our goal our coffee shop & community space can stay open, we can keep paying our team, keep producing events, keep sending out weekly newsletters and the Highlighter videos you know and love. Let's do this!
