It’s nice to follow the local cis-gender white woman who brings attention to new items in the Target dollar section, but in order to branch out online you’ve got to diversify that following list. From advocacy, to makeup, sex positivity and much more have found their way into this list of incredible queer content creators on TikTok. These are creators I follow and felt like sharing with readers. Feel free to comment any other women in the queer community you recommend on TikTok.
Alice Bizarre (@alicebizarre)
Following Alice has been incredible, not only for the insane talent in makeup but also for the stories and important pointers on safe and consensual “adult” parties. There’s so much to learn and be aware of and this creator continues to be a safe queer space navigating a sex-positive world.
Erynn Chambers (@rynnstar)
Not only is Erynn absolutely hilarious, but her advice and perspective has been continually solid in a crazy world. Her duets and reactions to some of the absurd and sometimes more ignorant parts of TikTok are not only cathartic but also so incredibly important with what she presents to viewers.
Mercury Stardust (@mercurystardust)
Mercury is not only a fantastic source for answers on household problems and fixing things around your space, but she continues to be a strong force in the queer community. Recently with everything happening regarding anti-trans bills in many states in the United States, Mercury and alluringskull are joining forces to raise money to help other trans youth. The streaming event, Mercury Stardust’s 2nd Annual TikTok-a-Thon for Trans Healthcare, kicks off on March 30th, 2023 at 5 PM EST. Donations can be made right now on the website detailing the event.
Cy shows so much love and joy with her cooking videos and little looks into her life. I continue to push myself to expand what food I look for because of many TikTok videos and her videos are for sure a part of that. Her live videos on TikTok also are such a vibe, bringing a level of comfort and safety to the queer community on the platform.
