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 Rowan Gavin, while Jamie takes a well-deserved break, and another queer creative as usual.
💬 This week:
- Gender Recognition Reform Bill. The UK government’s veto of Scottish legislation has prompted a constitutional crisis and another attack on trans lives. We look at what the key players are saying —and what they really mean.
- Conversion therapy ban. The Scottish government seems to have committed to protecting trans people with the ban, but when it will become law is still uncertain.
- Trans joy. With all that going on, it’s particularly great to have Tash Oakes-Monger with us this week to share their stories of trans joy in the Queer Gaze.
Skip the doom scrolling and support queer creatives instead. We are QueerAF – and so are you.
🏴 Blocking the Gender Recognition Reform Bill is a shameless attack on trans rights
TL;DR: In an unprecedented move, the Westminster government vetoed a bill voted through the Scottish parliament. The Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill would make it easier for trans Scots to get a Gender Recognition Certificate (GRC). It’s a blatant use of trans lives as a political football.
