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.
💬 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.

It's now four years since Twitter 'banned' transphobia - I think we can all agree on how much of a success that was.
The platform's bold claims that it had banned misgendering and deadnaming were widely discussed in headlines across the media.
