Understand the LGBTQIA+ news: GLAAD, Barbados and the dictionary

Matilda Davies
QueerAF, Matilda Davies

Every Saturday, QueerAF helps you understand the queer headlines and stay on top of the latest LGBTQIA+ content - all while we support queer creatives. It's written by me, Matilda Davies - and different queer creative each week.

This will be our final newsletter of 2022, as the QueerAF team is going to take a festive break. But don’t worry - we’ll be back in your inbox from 7th January to deliver you the LGBTQIA+ news and continue our work supporting queer creatives.

From all of us in the QueerAF family, have a wonderful (and gay) festive season.

💬 This week:

  • GLAAD. A new report has found LGBTQIA+ representation in film has decreased, and more diverse characters are needed.
  • Dictionary. Two leading dictionaries have made steps forward for trans rights with their official definitions.
  • Queer activism. Queer activism is a noble pursuit, but it’s vital to prioritise self-care, writes Deena al-Aqsa.

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