What our creatives say
QueerAF is a platform where creators, journalists and producers can get paid and commissioned directly by the QueerAF community. This, while we mentor them to build a career, work in the industry - and then, change it.
Even the most established journalists struggle to find time to sit down and speak to their editor, but we make time. Our 'retro' sub-editing session empowers writers to be in control of their work and improve their craft.
It's been described as "like therapy, but for writing" - and it's helping:
"I found it a very useful in depth look at why we're writing the story instead of the usual faceless editing."
"Great opportunity to understand the editing process, writing tips and tricks - a bucket full of creative advice!"
"I loved the process and how helpful you've been to a novice writer."
The idea is simple.
Support queer creatives to get into the newsroom - and then help them change it.
One of the biggest barriers to starting a media career is getting those first and early commissions. That's what we deliver to our creatives while you get award-winning content from fresh new voices.
We ask every creative to rate our process. 90% gave us a perfect score on our communication and approach. The retro, our unique way of editing their work, has an average rating is 9.8/10.
Our approach is award-winning and industry recognised across multiple platforms, including our newsletter and podcast scheme - but we can't do it without you.
We believe there’s a better way to be seen, heard and celebrated. Join us to change the media for good.
