Hey, brothers! So, today’s an exciting day. For nearly a year, we’ve been blogging and most recently podcasting and videoing. We exist across each of these mediums with one persisting goal in mind: to share our stories of faith, homosexuality, and masculinity. Together. To affirm that you are not alone.
Today is special, because today we launch our very own Your Other Brothers Patreon page!
What’s Patreon, you ask? In essence, it’s like an ongoing Kickstarter for content-creators of all genres all over the world.
We’ve come a long way in our first year of existence, but we’re not content to stay the same. In recent months especially, we’ve felt called to take Your Other Brothers to a whole other level. But it’s a level we can’t reach without some financial assistance.
Here’s what could happen here with enough ongoing financial support:
- Your Other Brothers releases bimonthly and eventually weekly podcasts.
- Your Other Brothers produces at least one creative video expression every month.
- Your Other Brothers builds deeper connections with our community collaboratively via Patreon and Facebook as well as more personally via Zoom and Skype correspondence.
With appropriate funding, the possibilities are endless for this blog, this community, this movement. Last month, over 2,000 unique visitors stopped by our site. If every visitor pledged just $1/month to our cause, we’d exponentially transform this community with written, audible, and video content galore.
We hope you’ll consider supporting us! Our first goal is $100/month to break even with monthly maintenance/upkeep costs: domain, site backup, hosting (blog and podcast), and basic WiFi.
Even one person pledging $1 a month covers the entire cost of our domain for a year (that’s HUGE); truly, no amount is too small.
In return, patrons of any size donation gain entry to our behind-the-scenes Patreon page — videos, pictures, and community updates galore.
$5/month grants you access to a private Facebook group where you can connect more regularly with other bloggers and supporters and see more of the magic behind the curtain — even help suggest further content for podcasts, videos, and more.
Check out our new Patreon page for a complete breakdown of our giving amounts and rewards.
If you support us with $5/month, you’ll gain access to that aforementioned Facebook group where we plan to record regular Facebook Live sessions.
Building this community for the last year has been among my most fulfilling endeavors. With your help, we can journey even further — even more than we can dream.

So cool, guys! This community is great and I’d love to be able to help you guys out! And I do agree with @disqus_yI5JO1n7GS:disqus, that is a cool shirt!
We’d be so glad to have you aboard, Karl! You’ve already supported us so much over the last few months.
Is YoB a registered non-profit group? Curious for tax reasons. Thx
We are not! Maybe one day.
You guys! I would love to support this blog. But I feel like the rewards are going to keep you so busy! Will you have time for all that and for what you want to do with the site?!
Absolutely. When it comes to this blog and community, the “work” doesn’t even feel like work. I’m enjoying pouring more and more of my time into this place; with some help, it’s only gonna make the “work” even more worth my while. It’s about the content, but it’s always gonna be more about the relationships!
The most important things ARE about relationships. Community.
Thank you for this, friend. I love connecting with you guys.
That shirt looks awesome! Can’t say I can pledge that much though. lol I’m still gonna make a pledge though because I love what you guys are doing.
No worries, Brian! Every pledge matters. Every supporter matters even more. Stoked to have you aboard!
Pledged. I may need to go back though and upgrade though, as I am coveting that shirt. And I don’t want to break another commandment.
Everyone’s digging the shirt! Awesome. We’ve already got one pledged!
Thanks for your support, MI! It’s huge.
That’s a pretty good Trump impersonation, Tom! You continue to astound us with your many talents.
is there a way to give an annual amount versus a monthly pledge?
We’ve already dialogued about this, but for anyone else reading who’d rather give a one-time donation simply get in touch with me! We can make that happen, too.
I’ll pledge as soon as I get my check … currently job searching, I’d appreciate prayers on this matter. Thank you guys for all you are doing
praying about that job
We appreciate your support whenever you’re able! No worries either way. Thanks, Japhet! You rock. All best with the job search.
