Every QueerAF for Organisations membership helps us support, mentor and launch the media careers of emerging and LGBTQIA+ creatives.

Connect your business to the LGBTQIA+ world

Keeping up with the fast-changing LGBTQIA+ landscape is tough for anyone - let alone for businesses and organisations.

QueerAF readers tell us how frustrated they are that bosses and businesses aren’t more understanding of their needs as LGBTQIA+ people.

In a recent survey, they told us their most significant challenges at work were:

  • Upper management not understanding or being ignorant about LGBTQIA+ issues
  • Being misgendered, bullied or harassed while working in judgemental and even hateful environments
  • Having to hide their identity or, when they do come out, managing the extra energy it takes to be authentic and open as themselves

Help your staff feel QueerAF

QueerAF is a newsletter for people who want to understand the LGBTQIA+ world without having to keep across multiple media outlets and sources. It helps you navigate LGBTQIA+ news and what it means for your business.

Every Saturday, we explain the queer headlines and send staff at QueerAF Organisation members a co-branded newsletter with:

  • 1 in-depth explainer: Help your staff understand the biggest queer story this week
  • 3 TL;DRs: Keep your staff on top of the LGBTQIA+ news with summaries, valuable analysis (and even more stories listed 'in brief')
  • 3 must-reads: Articles, threads and long reads your staff shouldn't have missed
  • 5 senses: Queer content everyone is talking about. What to watch (film, tv) read (books), play (video games) or listen to (podcasts, music)
  • 1 Queer Gaze: Read an underrepresented queer writer's take on the week

Customisation options allow you to write a unique intro, change the lead image and brand it with your own look.

You can choose to make it a newsletter from you, with the content delivered by us. Or, simply send the usual newsletter to your staff.

Your membership supports marginalised queer creatives to build a media career

"I loved the whole process, there are few places and organisations that have made it this easy for me to work with them. Plus the fact that I could write about what was important to me and that I didn't have to justify why." – Shivani Dave

QueerAF is a platform where creators, journalists and producers can get paid and commissioned directly by the QueerAF community. This while we mentor them to build a career, work in the industry - and then, change it.

Even the most established journalists struggle to find time to sit down and speak to their editor, but we make time. Β Our 'retro' sub-editing session empowers writers to be in control of their work and improve their craft.

It's been described as "like therapy, but for writing" - and it's helping:

"I found it a very useful in depth look at why we're writing the story instead of the usual faceless editing."
"Great opportunity to understand the editing process, writing tips and tricks - a bucket full of creative advice!"
"I loved the process and how helpful you've been to a novice writer."

Your organisation's membership will go a long way in supporting our community of diverse and hard-working creators.

QueerAF Lifetime Member
"As I was growing up seeing queer people on television was a lifeline for me and many others in understanding that there was nothing wrong with me - as well as giving a sense of the wider queer community. Representation in the media remains vitally important for young queer people and I wholeheartedly support it."
