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:

  • IVF Equality. A huge victory for same-sex wannabe parents this week as the government announces sweeping changes.
  • They/Them. The disturbing horror about a murderer on the loose at a conversion therapy camp, plus loads more LGBTQIA+ film drops.
  • Class. Often forgotten in the queer experience, but fundamentally written into the terms and conditions of our identity. Deenah al-Aqsa explores.

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

πŸ‘Ά IVF Equality Achieved - what does the change mean?

TL;DR: The government's new women's health strategy has recommended removing an unfair financial burden that saw same-sex couples paying thousands of pounds before getting IVF treatment on the NHS, which straight people got without financial barriers.

The government has published its first-ever Women's Health Strategy for England to "tackle the gender health gap." It also contains crucial promises to same-sex couples, trans and non-binary folk around IVF Equality.
