Every Saturday QueerAF helps you understand queer headlines and stay on top of the latest LGBTQIA+ content - all while we support queer creatives. It's written by me, Jamie Wareham, and a different queer creative each week.
💬 This week:
- Take Pride. A new report from Stonewall finds despite media bombardment, people support our differences and trans people.
- "Limit Harm". We look at a significant shift in public rhetoric coming from prominent anti-trans campaigners.
- Twitch. Finding your community counts. And despite the 'hate-raids' that's exactly what Laura Blake has done on the streaming platform - she talks about it in the Queer Gaze.
Skip the doom scrolling and support queer creatives instead. We are QueerAF – and so are you.
🤗 Take Pride: Britain supports our differences
TL;DR - Despite media bombardment and press that wants you to believe otherwise, there is a consistently growing trend of support for LGBTQIA+ lives and different cultures in the UK.
As we mark Pride Month, I think we can all agree on just how important pride, as a protest, still is.
This year's festivities follow a bombardment of headlines against the LGBTQIA+ community, and the trans community in particular. With all of that, it's easy to think that people hate us. They don't.
