5 Queer YouTubers You Should Be Following
From it’s humble beginnings in 2005, little did we know that a video sharing website featuring people talking about their daily lives, strumming a cover song or giving the lowdown on the latest gadgets would turn into such a global phenomenon.
YouTube has grown in record time and is now the go-to resource for online entertainment (not to mention all of our DIY dilemmas!) for the younger generations.
One area where YouTube has always had a strong representation is with LGBTQ+ Vloggers. From pioneers like Hannah Hart to Liverpool Queer Collective’s own seedling of a channel, YouTube has something for every kind of queer.
