Every Saturday we send you a TLDR of the queer world, bursting with LGBTQIA+ content - all while we support queer creatives.
💬 This week:
- PM's dog whistle. Another fast-moving week of news out of the UK. We look at transphobic dog-whistles from the government, the International LGBT conference being cancelled and more EHRC revelations. It's all explained.
- Doctor Who. It’s about to get very queer. This plus more film, music and joyous content to surround yourselves with.
- Un Safe To Be Me. This week's Queer Gaze reflects on the very real impact the media is having on the fragility of trans lives - it's devastating. From Ugla Stefania.
Skip the doom scrolling. Let us work out the queer world for you. We are QueerAF – and so are you.

TL;DR: Following the u-turns on conversion therapy, the Government's LGBT Conference 'Safe To Be Me' fell apart after a massive boycott. Now the PM and Health Secretary have used transphobic dog whistles and created huge damage.

But this week, there was a significant shift in Government rhetoric. It confirmed what so many of us already knew.
