  • LGB Alliance. This week the organisation was not stripped of its charity status in the first case of its kind. But only on a technicality - we explain.
  • Kit Connor. The young actor has given his first interview since coming out as bisexual and shared why he wishes he could have done it another way.
  • Honor Oak. A terrifying example of attacks on press freedom, mixed with fascist violence towards transgender people. In the Queer Gaze, journalist Jess O'Thomson reports on being attacked while trying to report on an anti-trans protest
