Understand the LGBTQIA+ news: Teacher tribunal, Tavistock fears and Saltburn


Table of Contents

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:

  • Teacher. The ruling from perhaps the most important Employment Tribunal around gender-critical beliefs barely got any coverage this week. We explain why.
  • Tavistock. As the world marks Transgender Day of Visibility and the joy of being gender-diverse, England's only gender identity service for kids will close. We look at the leaked emails that show clinicians are worried.
  • Saltburn. Will we look back at the film like Silence Of The Lambs: as a moment where cinema amplified a harmful and prejudiced trope? Diffwys Criafol explores in the Queer Gaze.

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

Teacher’s gender-critical beliefs are protected but his actions weren’t, Employment Tribunal rules

TL;DR: An employment tribunal sided with a college who fired a teacher for bullying and harassing a transgender student. It affirms what previous high profile 'gender critical' employment tribunals have found: beliefs are protected, but acting on them to discriminate is not.
