The Real MainStream is the only LGBTQ-identified progressive publication serving Iowa and Illinois; read our complete Mission Statement here.

TRM is funded by advertising revenue and welcomes additional support from individuals or groups, businesses that don’t need to advertise, and philanthropists seeking a way to give that goes a long way!

The community service we provide for Iowa and Illinois is constantly improving. Please help us keep improving. Thank you!
