Table of Contents

Understand the LGBTQIA+ headlines and keep track of the latest queer content and perspectives. This week, QueerAF is written by Rhys Everquill, while Jamie takes a well-deserved break.

I'm a journalist, writer, and media consultant. I co-founded the Great Central Gazette, a local independent newspaper in Leicester - I'm really excited to help you feel QueerAF with my first newsletter shift.

πŸ’¬ This week:

  • Target. The US retail giant has been sued for a line of Pride-themed clothing, in a case that could change the way businesses support social causes.
  • Amanda Abbington. The actress has backtracked on her previous comments about trans and non-binary people.
  • Lessons as a parent. Benaifer Bhandari writes about how her three LGBTQIA+ children came out to her.

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