LGBTQ Streamers of the Year

 

FoxQueen - People can expect a chill inclusive environment from my stream. I usually try to keep it fairly PG-13 but I am a gay woman that likes joking about a good tit every now and then. I typically play JRPG’s and story based games, usually of the anime variety. But any game where I can be a lady who smooches other ladies is a must play in my book and you’ll probably see it on my stream at some point.
 

Biggus Bennus - People can expect both a lot of interaction in chat and also in whatever I’m playing. I predominantly play Animal Crossing, incorporating game shows such as Deal Or No Deal, Blind Date and Snatch Game. Then every Friday I turn my community into big, oiled up wrestlers in WWE 2K and let them beat each other to a pulp. It’s a great way to welcome in the weekend!
 

MiaByte - Expect weirdness, wackiness, and a variety of content. Games, DnD, puzzle solving & more. No matter what I do it’s always a chill time. I basically just do my best to make peoples day a little bit better.
 

CypherOfTyr - You can expect a variety of things: mainly RPGs, third person shooters, crafting and mini painting and sometimes Coffee With Cypher. It’s a comfy community that takes safety seriously.
 

Psyche - She plays a lot of space, sandbox and story games, but also likes games that make her cry. Her community is focused on creating a safe and inclusive space, wholesome but sometimes immature humor, and a healthy dose of chaos.
 

IamBrandon - When someone comes to stream, they should expect the unexpected. He usually plays many retro games from the past that he never got to experience when he was younger, with a bit of horror from time to time. The conversation is mainly what keeps people staying.

J0hnJ0hnn -
My space is very loud and very gay! I’m a variety streamer and I play everything from simulation games, sandbox games, adventure, survival horror, and RPGs! We have a close-knit community who focus on supporting each other, talking about issues (personal and global), and razzing me for my gameplay! I’m also heavily focused on promoting a body positive space and inspiring people to be more comfortable and confident in their own skin.

LGBTQ Voices in Digital Spaces

 

Queer Influencers and Content Creators

 

The emergence and prominence of LGBTQ streamers, influencers, bloggers, gamers, and content creators have undeniably brought about a multitude of positive effects in various spheres. One of the most significant impacts lies in representation. By showcasing diverse sexual orientations and gender identities, these individuals contribute to a more inclusive and representative online environment. This representation not only helps LGBTQ individuals feel seen and heard but also fosters a sense of validation and acceptance among wider audiences.

Moreover, LGBTQ content creators often play a crucial role in breaking stereotypes and challenging societal norms. Through their authentic and unapologetic expression of their identities, they defy traditional expectations, helping to dismantle prejudiced beliefs and promoting a more open-minded and tolerant society. This process of normalization is vital in fostering empathy and understanding, ultimately contributing to the destigmatization of LGBTQ experiences.

Additionally, the presence of LGBTQ voices in the digital space serves as a platform for education and awareness. Content creators often use their influence to discuss important issues such as discrimination, mental health, and equal rights, fostering a more informed and enlightened audience. This educational aspect not only empowers the LGBTQ community but also allies, creating a ripple effect of positive change in attitudes and perspectives.

Furthermore, the success of LGBTQ influencers and content creators sends a powerful message about the potential for acceptance and inclusivity in various industries. By thriving in their respective fields, these individuals demonstrate that talent and creativity transcend sexual orientation or gender identity. This can inspire others in the LGBTQ community to pursue their passions without fear of discrimination, leading to a more diverse and enriched cultural landscape.

 

     

LGBTQ streamers, influencers, bloggers, gamers, and content creators contribute significantly to the positive transformation of online spaces and societal attitudes. Through representation, challenging stereotypes, education, and inspiration, they play a crucial role in fostering acceptance, understanding, and equality, paving the way for a more diverse and inclusive future.

Trans TikTok Personality Brianna Ghey is Murdered

 

Two school children charged with murder of trans teen Brianna Ghey

Brianna Ghey, who was described by her family as a "larger than life character," died in february 2023. Two schoolchildren have been charged with murder following the death of the 16-year-old transgender girl in an English village.

A boy and a girl, both aged 15, have been charged with the murder of Brianna Ghey, who was found dead in a park in Warrington in the country’s northwest. Members of the public contacted the emergency services after Ghey’s body was found on a path in Linear Park, in the village of Culcheth, police said. She was found with fatal stab wounds, police said.

Police and forensic scientists initially said there was no evidence to suggest the circumstances surrounding Ghey’s death was hate related, before later adding that all lines of inquiry were being explored, “including whether this was a hate crime.”

Brianna's family said: “Brianna was a much loved daughter, granddaughter, and baby sister. She was a larger than life character who would leave a lasting impression on all that met her. Brianna was beautiful, witty and hilarious. Brianna was strong, fearless and one of a kind. The loss of her young life has left a massive hole in our family, and we know that the teachers and her friends who were involved in her life will feel the same. We would like to thank everyone for their kind words and support during this extremely difficult time. We would like to thank the police for their support, and witnesses for helping with the investigation.”

Almost £90,000 ($109,000) has been raised so far for Ghey’s family by an online crowdfunding campaign. Those behind it say the funds raised will help pay for a funeral, which they hope to make “pink and colorful to match her personality.”

The charges come a day after candlelit vigils were held for Ghey in the cities of Liverpool and Bristol, with more due to be held across the country in the coming days.  Some of the events have been organized by trans rights and LGBTQ campaigners, including ones planned for London, Manchester and the coastal city of Brighton.

Meet Esmé James: TikTok’s Favorite Sex Historian

Esmé Louise James is a British-Australian sex historian and doctoral student who rose to digital fame when she began exploring the sexual history of the world in a series called “Kinky History” on TikTok.

 



Her saucy takes on ancient sex history have gained her nearly 2.5 million followers on the platform, a popular podcast, a TedX Talk, and a book, also called Kinky History (2023). In addition, she has helmed a documentary project for the Australian government called SexTistics, which reported wide-ranging facts, figures, and statistics about sex, gender, and sexuality. Her mother was the statistician on the project.

James has been open and proud about her bisexuality since the end of her undergraduate studies. Prior to her online fame, James published two novels, several works of poetry, and articles in a variety of media outlets.

LGBTQ Youth and On-Line Engagement

 

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and other sexual and/or gender minority (LGBTQ) youth identify significant benefits from engagement with social media, as well as other Internet-enabled technologies. While research comparing their use to their non-LGBTQ peers is limited, research has suggested LGBTQ youth may spend significantly more time online. Social media serves as informal learning environments for LGBTQ youth during their identity developmental processes. As LGBTQ identities remain highly stigmatized, social media sites provide youth with critical opportunities to explore, label, and practice disclosing their emerging LGBTQ identities; control and rehearse their social interactions; as well as access identity-specific resources. Even engaging more passively with social media (such as watching LGBTQ YouTube content) enables individuals to learn about identity-specific issues and be inspired in their coming out process, increasing identity confidence.

Social media facilitates identity construction and communication by allowing LGBTQ youth to curate their online presence in a context characterized by relative safety (users can block or accept whomever they choose) and control over anonymity (users can choose how much [if any] of their life is made public). The comparative anonymity available online facilitates opportunities for youth to develop and explore their LGBTQ identities in ways not feasible in offline communities. Anonymous social media activities ensure that participants’ emerging LGBTQ identities are protected from premature disclosure and from socially significant individuals (friends, family) who may not be accepting. Recent research finds that LGBTQ youth are able to engage in self-expression by curating their profiles and navigating unwanted comments and advances, which they are unable to do to the same extent in their offline lives. The interactive nature of social media enables a closer investigation of the ways that LGBTQ identities and experiences are constructed and communicated using technology.

For LGBTQ youth, online community engagement enhances well-being. Participation in online communities may allow LGBTQ youth to access role models who share their experiences, as well as seek emotional and social support. As individuals become more comfortable with their identity, they may engage in sharing LGBTQ content and participate in educating and supporting other LGBTQ people within their online networks. Youth were able to use social media as a bridge to access resources within their offline communities while minimizing potential risks, making local LGBTQ populations more visible to young people—particularly in rural communities. The Internet is perceived by LGBTQ youth as an efficient way to address gaps in identity-specific information (to access sexual health resources), as well as an effective means of learning about offline services and events. Overall, social media allows LGBTQ youth to explore their identities and social relationships, access resources, and curate their own mode of self-expression while controlling their degree of self-disclosure.

Best LGBTQ Streaming Services

Digital media is a powerful force. What happens on screen can set off a ripple effect that reaches all corners of society; one that influences not only how people view others, but also how people view themselves.

The average person spends 7.5 hours a day consuming media…  and yet, only 27% of the LGBTQ community feel they’re well represented by the content they see.  The time has come for this to change.

One of the digital platforms that hosts YouTubers and other creators is Uscreen, which has become a place where many LGBTQ content creators have launched their online streaming services.

Unicorns.live - Bringing LGBTQ Performances Online. Unicorns.Live broadcasts LGBTQ events using live video.

SVTV - Amplifying Queer Storytellers. In the digital age, inclusion and realistic representation of LGBTQ people is more important than ever. And that’s what SVTV is all about. SVTV offers LGBTQ community-driven content that include series, film, sports, documentaries, podcasts, and live streams.

TysonPlus - Boundary-Breaking LGBTQ TV Shows. TysonPlus is a LGBTQ streaming service that produces people-of-color-inclusive content.

TrickleUP - An Online Network Where Artists Help Artists. Inspired by the artists-on-behalf-of-artists movement, TrickleUp is an American charity organization that showcases performing arts content on its streaming platform.

Lesflicks VOD – An Online Space For Women Who Love Women (WLW). Focusing mainly on lesbian, bisexual, and some transgender, movies, shorts, and TV series, Lesflicks VOD brings you content you can’t find on traditional (and even LGBTQ) streaming services.

GayBingeTV - The Riches are in the Niches. GayBingeTV showcases gay movies and TV shows, creating a specific space in the entertainment industry for gay men while also leaving room on their platform for LGBTQ, including transgender content.

Fearless - Discover New, Independent, And Inclusive Content. Fearless is a video streaming service that offers viewers access to inclusive content from all under-represented groups.
