Big Easy Magazine Launches Membership Program


Big Easy Magazine announced today that we are launching a membership program to garner investment from our readers. We encourage you to consider a membership with Big Easy to invest in progress.

Why a Big Easy Membership?

Big Easy Magazine is a publication for the people of New Orleans. Our writers are locals who live New Orleans every day, and our advertisers are local businesses—their support allows us to be free of corporate influence.

Many of our readers are locals, too. Our friends and neighbors who are as unapologetically progressive as they are uniquely New Orleans. The success that Big Easy Magazine has seen since our May 2018 founding is because of all of you who have read, liked, shared, subscribed, and joined us at our events. We have another challenge for you.

Is a Membership for Me?

  • If you value Big Easy Magazine and the unique look we take at local government, the environment, race, gender, and class, we ask you to become a member.
  • Maybe you look forward to our original fiction, poetry, and film reviews—membership is for you.
  • Do you bleed black and gold and value our Saints coverage each week? Who Dat say you’re a new member?
  • And do you consult the Progressive’s Weekend and Progressive Living? We’d love to have you as a member.

How Much Does it Cost?

Our memberships are designed to be affordable for all New Orleanians with varying levels of membership. We’ll charge your credit or debit card monthly to make it as easy as possible for you. We’ll also show our appreciation by thanking you publicly, and we’re pleased to offer the membership benefits below. All Big Easy members allow the progressive stories to be told and help make our community more inclusive and welcoming for all.

We are pleased to offer three levels of membership:

  • Reporter’s Circle: $3.00/month

  • Editor’s Circle: $5.00/month

  • Publisher’s Circle: $10.00/month

We would love to have you invest in progress. Click here to learn more about a monthly membership with Big Easy Magazine.

Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive

Hey guys!

Our fundraising drive through GoFundMe has progressed well enough for us to sustain most of the magazine operations into the next month. As of June 1st, we're at $1400, but we’ve decided to extend our deadline to June 15th and make $3500 our new goal.

We’re so grateful to our friends, our families, our neighbors, and especially our readers for chipping in, sharing, and donating to the cause of local progressive media. Your support has lifted us up so much and will most assuredly not be lost or forgotten.

If you care about local independent progressive media in an era where multi-millionaires such as John Georges are monopolizing our local press, then please donate any amount you can to make our operation a success. We can do this! Do not give up.

What else can you do if you’ve already donated and can’t donate anymore? Share our content on Facebook and tell people about our fundraising operation. Call and email others who may be able to give. We believe in you because you believe in us and together we can ensure Big Easy Magazine becomes a progressive icon for New Orleans and an inspiration for the expansion of progressive media around the world.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
