Sometimes, advertising isn’t the way you’d like to support TRM. Here are three other ways to help The Real Mainstream receive the financial resources needed to provide advocacy journalism for intersectional, LGBTQ-affirming communities throughout Illinois and Iowa.

TRM Community Fund

Help The Real Mainstream support community groups through sponsorships, printed material support, advertorials, compensation for guest writers, and more.

BIPOC Professionals Fund

Help The Real Mainstream hold space for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color writers.

Gender Non-Conforming Fund

Help The Real Mainstream hold space for transgender and nonbinary writers.
