Gay Geekery: The Organization for Transformative Works

Fans looking for reasons to become a member of OTW during our current drive might check out Jack’s latest article over at The New Gay: Gay Geekery: The Organization for Transformative Works. In this column, Jack explains how his support of the OTW is connected to his own politics around queer liberation and sexual freedom. “But even beyond that,” Jack adds, “I want people to know that what we [fans] do is truly meaningful artistic work.”

Read the rest of the article, and then join the OTW! (And thanks for the shout-out, Jack!)

Support the OTW this October!

As the rash of new OTW lolcats might suggest, it’s time for our annual October donations drive! If you’re on our mailing list, you’ve hopefully already received an email about this. (Let us know if you haven’t!)

In the last few months, we have:

and much more!

Thanks to your awesome response to our March membership drive, we had the funds in-hand to purchase our shiny new servers outright. This is incredibly exciting. \o/!

But we still have costs: colocation, bandwidth, saving up for our second set of servers when the first set get worn-out, and all kinds of exciting new projects we hope to dive into once the AO3 is out of beta, including a Vidding Archive of Our Own. So we hope you’ll choose to donate to the OTW this week!

If you have trouble donating, you can contact DevMem by leaving a comment on this post (at the blog or its livejournal or dreamwidth mirrors) or by using the contact form at our website. Thanks for your support!
