There are several reasons why I am not on Patreon.
I want to create audio fiction that makes people smile and hope, and build a community that connects them through the shared experience of story. If I put the early access, community and/or extras behind a paywall like Patreon’s, it makes it a lot harder to succeed in my mission. It would have a discriminating effect for people not able to afford the money or not able to identify as a listener.
I want people around the world to have free access to my content. Paying for LGBTQ+ content is impossible for many people for various reasons. I hope listeners who are free to contribute will do so to keep this content available for everyone.
It would be easy to set up a Patreon account, but that would make me way too dependent on them. When you build your audience on a platform that is not yours, you’re putting your fate in the hands of that platform. I like to stay as independent as I possibly can be. I believe this is what I have to do to safeguard the future of The Lesbian Romantic.
We’re in this together!
The Lesbian Romantic has over 40 hours of immersive audio stories available. That's more than 3 full-length audiobooks! I believe this unique offering is worth supporting.
Your contribution helps me to create more stories for you.
Nothing is free. When you use a service or consume content without having to pay for it, you can assume that a company is making money by selling your data or selling your time. I don't do this.
You giving back enables me to provide a unique listening experience... without someone else listening in.
When you choose to give back to The Lesbian Romantic, you are part of keeping these stories available for all listeners. Not everyone can pay for LGBTQ+ content - for various reasons.
Your support helps me to share these stories with people around the world - and make them smile too.
