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.
💬 This week:
- Rabid dogs. We've got the topline queer angles on a difficult week for LGBTQIA+ folk as Conservative in fighting took aim at trans people (again).
- James Webb. Pretty pics from the telescope, but the scientist was part of the Lavender Scare that persecuted LGBTQIA+ Americans.
- Travesty. Gentleman Jack has been cancelled. Sophie Perry explains why that's an insult to lesbians literally everywhere in the Queer Gaze.
Skip the doom scrolling and support queer creatives instead. We are QueerAF – and so are you.

A break from Boris Johnson’s leadership, however, could offer silver linings where Conversion Therapy and the Online Safety Bill are concerned.
