The United States Library of Congress has selected the Salty website (yes- the one you’re reading right now!) to be included in the historic collection of internet materials related to Women’s Issues and the LGBTQ+ Studies Web Archive.

“We consider your website to be an important part of this collection and the historical record.”

– Library of Congress Web Archiving Program

“The Library of Congress preserves important cultural artifacts and provides enduring access to them. The Library’s traditional functions, acquiring, cataloging, preserving and serving collection materials of historical importance to foster education and scholarship, extend to digital materials, including websites. Our web archives are important because they contribute to the historical record, capturing information that could otherwise be lost. With the growing role of the web as an influential medium, records of historic events could be considered incomplete without materials that were “born digital” and never printed on paper.” – Library of Congress Web Archiving Program

At Salty, we exist with the fear that the stories we share could be erased, as many important stories throughout history have been. To know that Salty will be available for future generations to use as a resource is incredibly heartening. It’s an honor to be selected.

Remember, when you contribute to Salty, you are contributing to history. Our important work needs ongoing support. Become a member today.


Claire Fitzsimmons is the Founder and Director of Salty.

Legacy and mainstream media has failed women, trans and nonbinary people. They assumed our straightness, our thinness, our frigidity and our fragility for far too long. They preyed on our insecurities in order to market products to us, and told us stories from one perspective, over and over again.

But Salty isn't legacy media. We’re a radical new publishing platform with a mission to pass the mic to Salty babes across the world and amplify their voices. We’re fighting everyday to ensure the authentic stories of women, trans and nonbinary people are not erased.

But this comes at a price. As Salty takes off, we are faced with increasing overheads costs. There’s no secret bag of cash behind Salty. We are scrappy as hell, mostly working unpaid and need just 7,000 members to survive and thrive.

Invest in media that matters. Click here to make a one off contribution, or our choose-what-you-pay memberships start at $4.99 per month.
