Table of Contents

How do you feel about our book, TV and queer content recommendations?

We've been considering changing or removing the three least useful sections of the newsletter as ranked by you. Last week we asked about the Must Read section:

The feedback was mixed, but trended towards the section not being as useful as others. We're going to revise it. Instead of three must reads we'll offer one long read with a classic QueerAF TL;DR of it so you can get the juice before delving into a full and nuanced read.

It's super easy to participate in this week's question: do the one-click poll at the end of the email.

This week we're asking you about the Five Queer Senses Section. The poll is the same, love, not bothered and wouldn't miss.

We'd love to know in the comments or replies what queer content you'd miss the most if we got rid of this section. Would you miss the books? Music? Podcasts? TV and Film? Games?

Reply to this email or tell us your thoughts after you've made your one-click vote! We are QueerAF – and so are you.

Understand the LGBTQIA+ headlines and keep track of the latest queer content and perspectives. QueerAF is written by Jamie Wareham and another queer creative each week.

πŸ’¬ This week:

  • Quantum. Is it science or a state of mind? Prepare to have your queer world made much bigger, or smaller - or both at the same time.
  • IPSO. The mainstream press regulator - often described as β€˜toothless’ - just released new transgender reporting guidance. We explain.
  • O'Shea Sibley. The black gay dancer was murdered while voguing to BeyoncΓ© in a shocking hate crime. Rest in power.

Skip the doom scrolling and support queer creatives instead.

What queers can learn from Quantum science

We loved this Queer Gaze from Ri Baroche so much - we've pulled it to the top of the newsletter. Keep reading for our latest Journo Like Me feature in its place.
