Dear OUTWORDS friends,
Giving Tuesday

One week from today, December 1, is #GivingTuesday, a global day of generosity. We’re proud to serve you by preserving LGBTQ+ history, one interview at a time, and hope you will keep us in mind during this celebration of giving.

In particular, we would like to highlight the option to become a sustaining supporter, by signing up for a recurring donation. Recurring donations are exponentially more valuable to us, as they help us predict cash flow from month to month, and year to year. Please consider this option — and know that we are grateful for any contribution you are moved to offer. To donate, just click the blue button!

Giving Tuesday also falls on World AIDS Day this year, and we are proud to announce a very special webinar in honor of this important day:

Gilead and OUTWORDS present:
HERE AND NOW: HIV/AIDS Activists Speak Out
Tuesday, December 1, at 5pm Pacific Time/8pm Eastern Time

As a new virus sweeps the globe in 2020, 38 million people worldwide continue to live with HIV. On this World AIDS Day, join us as six activists from across the US come together to speak on the daring and creative ways they confronted HIV/AIDS, parallels between HIV and COVID, stigma then vs. stigma now, and the challenges facing HIV/AIDS activists as we prepare to welcome a new administration.
