In a continuing effort to receive support from readers, the Bay Area Reporter has launched its membership program.

San Francisco is one of 11 US cities that is fortunate to have a legacy LGBT publication by us, for us, and about us. Help preserve the BAR as an historic and important community institution for the future.

Even though we, as a nation, are going through some very trying times, the winners in these categories, voted for by Bay Area Reporter readers, should inspire you to get your freak on once social distancing becomes a thing of the past.
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. Celebrating the past year and with an eye toward the future, let's bring on this year's Bestie-winning events.
