What are the benefits of membership?
Membership benefits vary by how you choose to support The 19th. All members receive The Asterisk, our monthly, members-only newsletter; access to our Instagram Close Friends story; and 19th swag (unless they opt out). Those who give a one-time or recurring gift of $5 or more receive a place on our gratitude wall. Those who make recurring gifts receive invites to our virtual AMAs with our journalists.
