Every Saturday QueerAF helps you understand queer headlines and stay on top of the latest LGBTQIA+ content - all while we support queer creatives.
Matilda Davies writing to you this week, while Jamie takes a well-deserved break. I co-created The Queer Gaze and have been quietly involved with this newsletter since it was just a twinkle in Jamie's eye. Pleased to be back with you this week - with help from other queer creatives as usual.
Apologies that this is only just arriving in your inbox - there was a delay with it sending to some members this morning. Better late than never!
💬 This week:
- LGBTQIA+ rights in America. Recent wins in Montana, Virginia and Texas have advanced queer rights. Is the tide changing for our community across the pond?
- Catholic church. Belgian bishops have taken a stand. But the fight is not over for queer Catholics.
- Erick Adame. A gay weatherman has been fired for consensual sexual activity online, sparking debate about controversial cam sites.
Skip the doom scrolling and support queer creatives instead. We are QueerAF – and so are you.
Celebrating wins in the US: Is the tide finally turning for LGBTQIA+ rights across the pond?
TL;DR - Montana will allow trans people to change the gender on their birth certificate; schools in Virginia are opposing an anti-trans policy; a Texas judge prevented supportive parents of LGBTQIA+ children from being investigated. But it’s not all sunshine and rainbows.
