If you’re reading this, then you probably already know there’s a huge following for LGBTQ+ vloggers on YouTube, not to mention Instagrammers who spread the love on both platforms. Shortly after my sister Rachel and her girlfriend Megan started dating, it became clear that their friends and family loved their love. They wanted to see them in action, exploring new places, joking around with one another, and most importantly, addressing LGBTQ+ topics that people all over the world don’t just want to be informed about, but need to be. Megan and Rachel joined a long community of influencers with the launch of their channel, all of whom spread the same message about sexuality and identity: it’s OK to be who you are.
There are so many reasons you’re bound to become a subscriber to these channels, though. If you’re into fashion and beauty, Nikita Dragun and Andrea Russett will instantly feel like your new best friends. If you’re here to learn, Stevie Boebi makes queer educational videos and teaches sex education on her channel. And if you want to laugh, trust Hannah Hart to crack you the f*ck up (she also managed to recently find time to star in Taylor Swift’s “You Need to Calm Down” music video — no big deal). “Pride isn’t only about the people who are LGBTQ+, but also the people who support us and watch our videos,” Megan told me. Yeah, that sounds about right.
