Why do they chip in?
It's because they know our newsletter is more than just a good read. It's where we commission underrepresented LGBTQIA+ writers to share stories with you and the community.
Our new community-led platform is a place where the editorial decisions are in your hands. We think readers, not gatekeepers, are our most valuable editors.
And members, who pay for our newsletter, fund our vital work training a new generation of LGBTQIA+ creatives. And that's where we need you.
What does the newsletter fund?
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.
To build this new kind of media, we need to remove barriers for people with marginalised backgrounds. We need to give amazing queer talent a head start. QueerAF's mission is to make that change possible. That's what our newsletter funds.
And yes, our newsletter is free to all because information about LGBTQIA+ shouldn't be a luxury - and we love all our readers, regardless of their ability to pay. But if you can chip to make this vital project a success, your contribution will make a huge impact.
