You'll also do awesome community-supporting work:

  • As well as supporting us to support you, 20% of your membership also goes straight into our two new LGBTQ+ funds - the Somewhere: Arts and Culture Fund and the Somewhere: Enterprise and Research Fund helping queer creatives and businesses across Scotland

What does it cost?

A: Depends on whether you'd like to pay up front 

  • A monthly membership is £5 /month (£60 /year)

  • An annual membership is £50 /year 

I think my friends and family might like to join. Can I buy membership as a present?

Do you have a Pay-It-Forward option if I want to gift an issue to someone who may not be able to afford it?

  • We sure do. If you visit the shop and choose Pay-It-Forward, we will gift your issue to an LGBTQ+ charity or community organisation on your behalf 

Can I buy your magazine in the shops?

  • We have a few select stockists in Edinburgh and one in Glasgow. We also offer single issue copies for sale via our own online shop for a limited time, after members have had their exclusive preview week. Please note that from Issue 2, the retail price of the magazine is £7, which is £2 more than the cost for members. Contact us for details :)

What if I just want to support your work but don't want a magazine?

  • You can donate to us buy buying us a rainbow latte or two here 

What about your paper and packaging from an environmental and sustainability point of view?

  • Our hard copy magazines are printed on paper sourced from sustainable forests as approved by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Our inner packaging (cellophane) is 100% compostable and biodegradable. Our outer packaging (mailbags) are 100% recyclable.
