QueerAF | Inspiring LGBTQIA+ stories told by emerging queer creatives

The media is failing queer people: This is how to change it

Listen on

Episode notes

Can we tell you how to change the way the media writes about queer lives? It’s a change we need urgently.

From transphobia led by the press, media getting it wrong and regulator Ofcom and the BBC signalling, queer lives are up for debate. It’s a growing pattern that is spilling out onto the streets in the form of rising hate crimes. It’s time for an organisation to fight back. To advocate for us in the media. To show change is possible by commissioning and then supporting the voices who are too often left behind.
