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!

    119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

    "I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

    The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

    When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

    We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

    Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

    They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

    Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

    Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

    I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

    I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

    Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

    Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

    The beaches are starting to open up. At least in Cape Cod, where my family and I were able to vacation this week. Near our house, we have a bit of a private beach, which is great.

    I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
