Every Saturday we send you a summary of the week's top LGBTQIA+ news, queer content you don't want to miss and a beyond the binary spotlight on the voices that deserve to be heard.
💬 In this week's issue:
- Education. The latest moral panic has come from the classroom, and it has broad implications which could lead to another Section 28, by the backdoor.
- Queer family. Given how difficult the NHS makes same-sex IVF, this week’s viral social media post is the cutest.
- Lies. Sometimes we don’t need to correct them. For this week's Queer Gaze, Shivani Dave explains why we help build anti-trans sentiment when we do.
Skip the doom scrolling. Live your best queer life, on your own terms. We are QueerAF – and so are you.
🚸 Section 28 through the backdoor?
Nigel and Sally Rowe first made headlines in 2017. This week they're back. They've got permission for a judicial review of trans policies in English schools. This story matters because it sits in a broader set of issues in the UK.
When you connect the dots between political appointments to once-independent bodies and new guidance about 'safeguarding political impartiality' in classrooms. The picture is building towards the same pressure anti-LGBT education law 'Section 28' created.
