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!

πŸ’¬ 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.

Want to take a look at this? You can! This is from our free weekly newsletter, just pop your email in to catch up and read the most recent edition for free now. PS... 'Early Adopter', and '100% QueerAF' members get early access and unlock the whole archive too.

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.
