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:

  • Maya Forstater. She may have won some parts of her appeal, but it's a limited victory. What does this mean for our rights at work?
  • Pride in London. Is it in trouble? We explore, plus Shivani Dave looks at what to think about as you head to your next pride.
  • I try. Maybe not hard enough. We explore Macy Gray and Bette Midler's comments that could be read as anti-trans dog whistles.

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


πŸ³οΈβ€βš§οΈ Maya Forstater: What does her appeal ruling mean for transgender rights?

Felix Fern's reporting of the #NotSafeToBeMe' protest last week was so incredible that we've asked them back to explain one of the most disproportionately reported employment tribunals ever. What does it mean for trans and all LGBTQIA+ rights in the workplace?
Maya Forstater tweet: Yes I think that male people are not women. I dont think being a woman/female is a matter of identity or womanly feelings. it is biology/ People of either sex should not be constrained (or discriminated againt) if they dont conform to traditional gender expectations
