Understand the LGBTQIA+ headlines and keep track of the latest queer content and perspectives. QueerAF is written by Jamie Wareham and another queer creative each week.
💬 This week:
- Rainbow Logos. After years of cashing in on Pride Month, brands have begun to bow to anti-LGBTQIA+ voices left, right and centre. Why?
- Cycling. In a long expected decision, the sport has banned trans women from competing in women's cycling. We look at the response.
- Queer journos. After the annual report into the diversity in journalism included sexuality for the first time, LGBTQ Journalism Network's Sophie Perry looks at what the numbers mean.
Skip the doom scrolling and support queer creatives instead. We are QueerAF – and so are you.
Will we see fewer rainbow logos this year? Corporates baulk amid anti-LGBTQIA+ hate
TL;DR: As brands like Adidas, Bud Light and Nike are targeted by a wave of anti-LGBTQIA+ sentiment, even Target's infamous pride line has been partially retracted. After years of the community calling on businesses to do more than a rainbow logo, this year may take us back to an era when that alone was a radical act.
