Journalist Like Me, Wes Streeting, Heartstopper and other LGBTQIA+ stories this week


Table of Contents

Every Saturday QueerAF sends you 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:

  • Trans athletes. The headlines suggest there is division, but a resurfaced study shows once again that the majority support trans folk.
  • Lesbian Visibility Week. Starts on Monday, it celebrates lesbians and shows solidarity with all LGBTQI women and non-binary people in our community.
  • A shared vision. We believe the UK media industry only thrives when it’s bursting with queer talent. We've partnered with the newly launched LGBTQ+ Journalism Network to fund a joint series of content - the first two articles are in today’s newsletter.

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.
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.

Delivering for ad traffic has gotten in the way of pitching exciting queer content throughout my career. That’s why I’ve set up a platform without them

I remember sneaking into town to buy a copy of a gay mag for the first time.
