Understand the LGBTQIA+ headlines and keep track of the latest queer content and perspectives. QueerAF is written by Jamie Wareham.
💬 This week:
- Culture Wars. We talk about them a lot – because the media does. As we continue to keep the receipts elsewhere, we explore new research that shows, at least on trans issues, it's not translating to an electoral advantage.
- Conversion Therapy. The latest twist? The government hasn't included it in the King's Speech. We help you understand what that means.
- Brianna Ghey. This week would have been her 17th birthday. We remember the murdered trans teen as two young people await trial for her murder.
Skip the doomscrolling and support queer creatives instead. We are QueerAF – and so are you.
Only 1% of people will vote based on trans issues in the next election, research
TL;DR: Most so-called "culture war" tactics haven't worked and have failed to register in UK voter's minds as electoral issues – trans rights especially. For some Conservative voters, however, the Home Secretary's relentless attacks on migrants has had an impact.
