You’ve heard of queer YouTubers and queer Instagrammers, but now there’s a whole new set of online content creators that you need to know about (and follow, duh): queer TikTokers. If you’re still in the dark about what TikTok is, it’s a wildly popular free mobile app that millions of gen Zers — and even millennials — use every day to make 15-second videos about everything from a funny life moment to them lipsyncing to a popular song. And since LGBTQ+ people are everywhere, we’re all over TikTok, too. You can find us rolling our eyes at daily casual homophobia, kissing our girlfriends, and even making fun of ourselves for being actual stereotypes (it happens).
Check out these 10 LGBTQ+ TikTok content creators for relatable humor, hot takes on queer culture, and a glimpse into their lives.
