Dear EC Reader,
The Empty Closet magazine has been a voice, platform and vehicle for our community since 1971. Outside of championing the local LGBTQ+ community and demonstrating authenticity, our main objective has always been to keep the magazine free and accessible to anyone interested in reading it.
The Empty Closet is available for pick-up at the Out Alliance Resource Center, over 125+ distribution locations and on our website.
With the rising costs of printing, paper, and mailing it became necessary to reevaluate the magazines related expenses and devise a plan to make sure we can continue printing this incredible publication that stands as the longest running continuously published LGBTQ+ publication in the nation and keep the magazine free of charge to everyone who needs and wants it.
In order to make sure those priorities are met, effective 7/1/19, the magazine will remain free for pick-up at our many distribution locations that are located on our website. However, for the convenience of having the Empty Closet delivered to your home, you will be charged an annual subscription fee of $30.00. If you are interested in subscribing, click on this link https://bit.ly/2WHCqO7 or visit the Empty Closet section of the Out Alliance website to sign-up for your mailing subscription.
If you do not sign-up and pay for your subscription, you will stop receiving your copy of the Empty Closet by mail as of the July 2019 magazine. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Editor, Tamara Leigh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank you for your understanding and partnering with us in our promise to be transparent and financially responsible to our community and donors.
In Love and Resilience,
