Become a milkboys Patreon & get some sweet Rewards!

milkboys Blog, Official 10 Comments

The milkboys Patreon campaign is now launched :) Patreon is a way to financially support creators so they can spend more time doing what you, and they, love. In return you’ll get some fun rewards (like access to a special chat, a private blog and much more)!

You can still do one-time donations of course, if you prefer that!

Here’s what I wrote as a little introduction on Patreon:

I founded milkboys when I was a queer teenager myself, frustrated with the lack of online resources available to me and my friends. Most LGBT sites are catering to “gay men”. Not bisexuals or trans teens or even queer allies.

I wanted a site that speaks to everyone on our broad & colourful queer spectrum. A place where you can feel at home, meet people, read about how the society & politics around us are changing and having an impact on our daily lives but also have the option to just look at pretty people for a while without feeling judged.

milkboys in its current form is going into its 9th year now and I’d love to make it grow, more colourful, entertaining and more accessible to people who still have a hard time finding a place online where they can just be.

If you become a patreon of this project you will enable me to spend more time working on milkboys, update the site a lot more often than currently possible and create more original content (photos, videos, articles and so on) and in return will get a look behind the scenes and one or two other little things as a thank you ;) Thank you for your loyalty & incredibly generous support!

I will refine and add more details about the goals and rewards over the coming days! I’ll also try to get as many of the rewards as possible to people who donated before. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!

      That would be $2. You can see all the rewards on the Patreon page, lower tier rewards are automatically included in every tier above them.

  2. Patreon only allows you to give regular month-to-month donations. I might be tempted to give a substantial amount when my tax return comes, but still be broke two months after that.

  3. 200usd monthly server costs? really? What do you run? A filehost?
    Similar projects are fine with shared hosting 10usd month or even not more than 60usd for VPS hosting.

    so this prices you showed us on patreon let assume someone wants to get rich with :p

    no offense ;)

      I’ve tried shared hosting twice and was asked to switch to a dedicated server both times because the site generates too much traffic & is too heavy on the hardware. Not sure which sites you mean with “similar projects” but I’m not aware of any with the same amount of visitors.

      On top of that it’s not only about the traffic & hardware but also having a host who is fine with having this kind of content and most hosts aren’t.

      I explained the rest here:

  4. I just checked in on the commitment to date, and wanted to note that since I did a donation on the last round I’m not ready to plug my ongoing donation in just yet. I hope that the link will be easy to find going forth. My guess is that there are others too. Thanks.
