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, Jamie Wareham brings us the top story, and another queer creative as usual.
💬 This week:
- Nashville. Is there a link between trans people and mass shootings? Or are right-wing pundits clutching at straws?
- Lily Savage. Comedy legend Paul O’Grady died this week, and queer people across the UK are remembering his legacy
- Queer voices. There are fewer and fewer LGBTQIA+ focused journalists, and we need to change that to ensure our stories are heard, Gary Nunn writes
Skip the doom scrolling and support queer creatives instead. We are QueerAF – and so are you.
