Support our mission to disrupt British media

In 2020, we first launched our membership, and since then, we’ve been overwhelmed by the response from our community who joined us in challenging Britain’s whitewashed media landscape. Memberships allow us to continue our work uplifting marginalised communities through our journalism and creative projects. 

Right now, the UK media industry is more turbulent than ever. As a small and relatively young company the challenges in the industry are becoming progressively difficult to navigate. This year, we need to grow our membership to a community of 6,000 members – and we need your help to get there. 


From as little as £4.99 a month, there are three lovingly created tiers for you to choose from: Sugar, Nice and Spice. 

So far with our members support we’ve been able to grow our commissioning to platform even more new writers and creatives, produce groundbreaking journalism such as our investigations on transgender healthcare in the UK and our Open Secrets series. Members’ support has also helped us put over £1 million directly into the hands of people of colour from marginalised genders. 

We’re so proud of everything we’ve achieved so far, but our ambitions rely on our ability to evolve. That’s why we’re asking you our readers to support our mission and help gal-dem grow. 

On top of supporting our journalism that uncovers hidden histories and untold stories from our communities, as a member you’ll have access to monthly perks from the gal-dem team. gal-dem members receive:

  • Access to gal-dem Discord Channel – a space for members to connect with us and each other
  • A monthly gal-dem culture club – From books, to films, to poems, and more, we’ll be hosting a monthly space to discuss the works and the vast themes and topics that emerge from them. 
  • Monthly live chats with our editors – Once a month, they’ll be sharing thoughts and insights relating to their areas, opening up discussions that expand on our content across music, politics, life, climate, culture and first person. 
  • Skill shares with the wider gal-dem team – We’ll be sharing short videos to assist anyone doing work that may benefit from a range of creative insights. 
  • Monthly member spotlights – A bi-monthly newsletter spotlighting our members. 

The cost of our top tier nice membership also pays it forward to allow those who aren’t able to subscribe access to our guest members.
