Elon Musk, GenderGP, Heartstopper and other LGBTQIA+ headlines explained


Table of Contents

Every Saturday QueerAF sends a summary of the queer world, bursting with LGBTQIA+ content - all while we support queer creatives. It's written by me, Jamie Wareham, and a different queer creative each week.

πŸ’¬ This week:

  • Elon Musk. He’s the billionaire (and off-brand Iron Man)that just took control of one of the biggest platforms in the world - and he regularly shares transphobia. We explain what that means.
  • Dr Helen Webberly. A long-awaited vindication of a doctor who wants to help young trans folk. We unpick the partisan headlines.
  • Heartstopper. Turns out, it was a heart racer. We look at the acclaim the short series has already won.

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

LGBTQIA+ people are still facing life-or-death decisions in Ukraine. We're resting 'Live Laugh Love' and have a section about queer Ukrainian lives instead.
