Support CQ

Are you into what we do? If you can get behind our mission of lifting up LGBTQ+ voices in country, Americana, and folk, we sure could use your help.

Why We Need Your Support

CQ is full-time work for me (Dale); as the site’s publisher and editor-in-chief, I do everything from chasing down leads to copyediting contributions to running the socials – I even co-produce the podcast! Our contributors, including our great staff of editors, writers, and podcasters, volunteer their talents in whatever time they can spare.

Here’s the thing: I have bills to pay, and if I can’t pay them with Country Queer, I’ll have to shut it down. Once we get to a place where I can pay my bills, I’ll pay the CQ contributors. (Otherwise I’ll lose them!)

How You Can Support CQ

If you dig what we do, there are several ways you can support us. Everything helps, and anything you do is deeply appreciated. Here are some ideas – pick one that’s comfortable for you.

BUY MERCH. We have high-quality shirts, hats, stickers, and more that not only support us but promote queer country visibility and community! Visit our Etsy store and check out our offerings.

BUY AN AD. If you or someone you know has a business that wants to reach 10,000 highly engaged visitors a month, contact me. I will meet your budget.

DONATE. You can make a donation in any amount via PayPal or Venmo (Dale-Geist-1). (I’ll send you a sticker!)

CONTRIBUTE. Are you a writer or editor? A social media expert? A clothing/merch designer? A video editor? A marketer? An accountant? A lawyer? Country Queer needs you! Contact me and let’s get rockin’.

SPREAD THE WORD. Follow and share on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram (and in real life!)
