Every Saturday, QueerAF helps you understand the queer headlines and stay on top of the latest LGBTQIA+ content - all while we support queer creatives. This week, it's written by Matilda Davies, the top story by Jamie Wareham, and another queer creative as usual.

πŸ’¬ This week:

  • Equality Act. New EHRC guidance could ban trans people from single-sex spaces, sports and groups
  • Bud Light. TikToker Dylan Mulvaney has been targeted by transphobes online for a brand partnership with the beer brand
  • Trans-masc team. History was made by the first all trans-masculine football team in Europe, Arthur Webber writes

Skip the doom scrolling and support queer creatives instead. We are QueerAF – and so are you.

TL;DR: The EHRC has set out how the government could create a legal route for people to discriminate and exclude transgender people. It's been widely condemned by LGBTQIA+ groups, but welcomed by the government and Labour Party. Though it's only advice, the government is now expected to pursue a change in the law.
