Understand the LGBTQIA+ news: UN Intersex Resolution, Uganda and Queer Joy

Understand the LGBTQIA+ news: UN Intersex Resolution, Uganda and Queer Joy


Table of Contents

This week's newsletter edition is only possible thanks to QueerAF Editor tier member Sara Webb, a lesbian heartbreak resilience coach.

"Queer voices reverberate. I support QueerAF because it’s our time to shine, to elevate the collective consciousness with our expansive voices and step into our power as representatives of the breadth of humanity itself. I understand the transformation from heartbroken to wholehearted. I empower women to get over their exes and get back to themselves, toward liberation from devastating heartbreak and divorce."

Understand the LGBTQIA+ headlines and keep track of the latest queer content and perspectives.

QueerAF is written by Jamie Wareham, and another queer creative each week.

πŸ’¬ This week:

  • Intersex. A historic ruling was passed at the UN this week for Intersex rights. We explore what it means and the bigger picture.
  • Uganda. A little known code of conduct signed by multinationals is being ignored amid controversy around the country's anti-LGBTQ laws.
  • Joy. A new research project has been discovering a broader understanding of the importance of queer joy. Alice Wilson writes in the Queer Gaze about what it's found so far.

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

TL;DR: One of the most marginalised and forgotten parts of the LGBTQIA+ community was the focus of a landmark report that will set in motion a new global evidence-gathering process. Intersex people commonly face a series of abuses including unnecessary, irreversible surgeries as children.
