7 LGBT+ YouTubers You Need In Your Subscription Box

What makes YouTube great is its ability to showcase all sorts of people and their content. In High School, I was like many of my peers in that I rarely watch television and instead spent my time on Netflix or YouTube. There was nothing more comforting than being able to hear stories of people like me all around the world. There's a great sense of community that comes with more of vlog style videos because they're often not heavily edited. Especially when coming to terms with your sexuality, it can feel like there's no one who will understand. This is where YouTubers like the people I've listed below become extremely crucial for some people.

    1. MacDoesIt

    Mac is my go-to if I need a laugh. He is known for his reaction videos which involve a lot of screeching and dancing. You'll find him reacting to all sorts of things including red carpet looks, homophobic commercials, and popular children’s toys from the 80s.

    2. MilesChronicles

    Miles is the King of Memes™. In addition to having great videos chalked full of wisdom about coming out as Gay or Trans, he also has his own show on Fullscreen called Hella Gay. He tours the country spreading love and meeting his young fans and their parents and often talks about crying in their arms.

    3. Rose and Rosie

    Rose and Rosie are marriage goals. Additionally, they were the first LGBT YouTubers I ever started watching so their videos hold a special place in my heart. Their channel is full of chatty videos, gaming videos, and vlogs. If you want to be really emotional you should check out their wedding video.

    4. The Next Family

    The Next Family is a vlog channel you’re definitely going to want to check out. On top of entertaining and heartwarming vlogs, they also have separate videos focusing on advice and serious chats on coming out, how they decided what they wanted their kids to call them and much more.

    5. Ash Hardell

    Ash Hardell came out as Trans Nonbinary recently and gives advice to their younger audience. They discuss things like the difference between clothing and identity and how biological sex is not always so clear-cut.

    6. Amy Ordman

    Some buzz words to describe Amy Ordman are delightfully awkward, Australian accent, ordering food in a tiny car, and other vlogging adventures. Amy's goofy disposition makes her extremely entertaining to watch.

    7. Courtney Act

    In addition to music videos and makeup tutorials, Courtney Act posts videos discussing topics like “How to be a race ally”, “Feminism” and “How to change undies in limo”. Courtney first appeared on Season 6 of Rupaul's Drag Race and now tours the world with other drag queens. She's also currently on Celebrity Big Brother!

    An Atlanta Weekend

    A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


    On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

    20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

    ... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

    20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

    Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

    What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

    Sinning in Las Vegas

    Be careful what you do and post


    Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.
