XY: funds needed to maintain the website
Dear friends and colleagues,
Many of you know and use the website XY. I am writing to let you know that I have launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise a small amount of money to support XY. Please go to https://chuffed.org/project/xycampaign to offer your support.
XY is one of the most substantial profeminist resources on men, masculinities, and gender on the internet. XY is a resource library, a forum, and a toolkit for change. It’s got hundreds of articles and resources, on violence, fathering, men’s health, pornography, sexualities, class and ethnicity, working with boys and men, and a host of other areas. XY also hosts The Men’s Bibliography, a massive bibliography of scholarship on men, masculinities, and gender, at http://www.xyonline.net/bibliography.
The website’s software is out of date and needs a proper upgrade. Also, the site has been run entirely by volunteers, and it’s time for XY to have some proper financial support, to pay someone to do regular part-time work managing and extending the site.
I hope that you can offer what support you can afford to maintain XY as a valuable resource for our work. You will find the fund-raising campaign at https://chuffed.org/project/xycampaign.
Please do share this invitation.
... A very big THANK YOU to those people who have made donations, including (in alphabetical order by surname):
