QueerAF is a platform for queer creatives like you to build your career
Our mission is to support, mentor, and build the resilience of queer creatives to get their first commissions and kickstart their media career.
We're doing all of this because we believe the UK media industry thrives when it’s bursting with queer talent.
And that's crucial because only a media industry that represents, hires, and understands us – can help shift the narrative on being queer in the UK.
We’re excited to have you involved in our platform, and we can’t wait to see what you come up with. Find out how to get started below.
We are QueerAF – and so are you.
We're open for pitches
These are the formats we're currently accepting pitches for:
Right now we're commissioning emerging and underrepresented queer creatives to write a section of our weekly newsletter called 'The Queer Gaze'.
‘The Queer Gaze’ is a space in our newsletter to commission emerging and underrepresented queer creatives so you can get published, receive mentorship and ultimately, kickstart your career.
We're mostly focused on the UK - but welcome pitches from anywhere.
Journalist Like Me
In collaboration with the LGBTQ+ Journalism Network, we're publishing a content series of articles written by LGBTQIA+ journalists about their experiences in the media.
It will share not only stories but model the change we want to see by offering alternatives to how bad situations could be handled differently.
