Donors and Support

We're not like other news outlets—we provide deep accountability reporting on issues directly effecting the LGBTQ+ community. We do this because we believe communities should have a trusted news source that elevates their voices and experiences.

Your donation keeps LOOKOUT completely free without a paywall and lets us tell the stories other news outlets don't have the ability to tell.

We accept donations of all sizes. For those who want to give a small donation of under $50, feel free to use our tip jar.

Memberships are the best way to make sure that our news outlet stays relevant and free for the community. If you haven't already become a monthly or annual member, visit our page here to subscribe. Members get access to exclusive LOOKOUT swag, invite-only events, and opportunities to help shape the way our news is told.
