Boris Johnson, JK+Putin, RIP George Montague and other LGBTQIA+ stories this week


Table of Contents

Every Saturday we send you a TLDR of the queer world, bursting with LGBTQIA+ content - all while we support queer creatives.

πŸ’¬ This week:

  • Boris. Set out to differentiate himself from Labour this week, but fed anti-trans β€˜culture wars’ at PMQs instead. Let's look at his record as PM on queer lives.
  • Why did it trend? As part of our effort to help you skip the doom scrolling (but stay in the know) a TLDR on what *they* said in as few words as possible before we move onto what really matters. Reply and tell us what you think.
  • Thierry Henry (the teddy). This week's Queer Gaze is part of Football Vs Transphobia week from Arthur Webber - read for the teddy, stay for the fight against transphobia.

Skip the doom scrolling. Let us work out the queer world for you. We are QueerAF – and so are you.

Every word in this newsletter is written knowing LGBTQIA+ people face life-or-death decisions in Ukraine. We're resting 'Live Laugh Love' and have a section about queer Ukrainian lives instead.
Want to take a look at this? You can! This is from our free weekly newsletter, just pop your email in to catch up and read the most recent edition for free now. PS... 'Early Adopter', and '100% QueerAF' members also get early access and unlock the whole archive too.

🐢 Boris Johnson repeats transphobic dog whistle in Parliament

The Conservatives try to talk a good game about LGBTQIA+ rights, but Boris Johnson's government kicked transgender rights reforms into the long grass on day one of his premiership.

The Conservative party does not have a reliable political record on voting for LGBTQIA+ rights.
