Table of Contents

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, Jamie Wareham, and a different queer creative each week.

πŸ’¬ This week:

  • Kit Connor. The Heartstopper star came out as bisexual this week - but only after intense speculation. QueerAF member Jaron looks at why he felt 'forced' to come out.
  • Queerbaiting. Has it gone too far? That's the question one of our must-reads seeks to answer this week as we centre our attention around Connor's coming out in this special edition of our newsletter.
  • Internalised biphobia. The bullying Connor faced will have impacted other bi-folk too. Charlotte Fountaine writes in the Queer Gaze to help those in need.

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

Jaron Soh is an early adopter member of QueerAF, and using their experience and perspective, he has written about Kit Connor's 'forced' coming out. We're excited to launch this strand of content and open up our platform to our individual members.
