gal-dem is an independent media company platforming the voices of people of colour from marginalised genders. As a left-wing, anti-capitalist media outlet, we want to be powered by the very community we exist for.
That’s why, in March 2020, we launched our membership! We want our readers to help us continue to be independent, enable our talented team to get paid and continue to bring you the much needed stories and perspectives from our community.
From as little as £5 a month, our lovely members help us to continue to take up space in this industry. In a media landscape that’s 94% white and 55% male, and is institutionally designed to disempower, discredit and silence our voices. Since 2015, we have worked hard to disrupt these narratives, and there’s so much more we want to do.
As a member, you will help us continue our award-winning, ground-breaking journalistic work. From our crucial investigative pieces to our editorial series and much-loved columns, members support the journalism missing from traditional outlets, and help us expand our journalism into videos, podcasts and events.
In return for your support, you will get access to our carefully curated perks each month. gal-dem members receive:
