Understand the LGBTQIA+ news: Scotland's Self-ID law, PinkNews, Say Lesbian

Every Saturday, QueerAF helps you understand the queer headlines and stay on top of the latest LGBTQIA+ content - all while we support queer creatives. It's written by me, Jamie Wareham, and a different queer creative each week.

πŸ’¬ This week:

  • Scotland. One of the UK's most consulted pieces of legislation is still facing accusations of being rushed through. We unpick the reaction to the progressive trans health law.
  • Attack on queer media. One of the first actions of the new minister for Equalities and Women was to attack PinkNews in parliament.
  • Lesbian isn't a slur. So why don't we say it more often? QueerAF reader, and now contributor, Aphra Luchesa writes in the Queer Gaze.

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