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:
- The Lesbian Project. Gender critical activists have set up a new campaign group - but its aims appear more insidious than the name suggests - Jamie Wareham explores.
- Brianna Ghey. A funeral was held for the murdered teenager this week, and we have some other updates on the story.
- Marcel the ̶S̶h̶e̶l̶l̶ queer icon. Queer headcanons allow LGBTQIA+ people to feel seen and find community joy, Helen Bowie writes.
Skip the doom scrolling and support queer creatives instead. We are QueerAF – and so are you.
