Meet TikTok’s LGBTQ+ Trailblazers

Not sure where to get your queer content fix on TikTok? Look no further than the app’s official list of LGBTQ+ TikTok Trailblazers.

This group of fifteen queer content creators was handpicked by TikTok to represent the queer side of the platform during Pride Month. Their content ranges from comedy to activism and from fashion to mechanics — something for every brand of gay! 

On its website, TikTok writes that these are “creators who are at the forefront of the next wave of digital entertainment and defining what it means to embrace self-pride and live their lives freely and to the fullest.”

So, who exactly is getting the spotlight this Pride? Here’s the breakdown:

1. Antoni Bumba (@antonibumba)

Antoni Bumba does it all on their page: ranting about astrology, complimenting strangers and, most virally, starting the “BBL Effect” trend.

Throughout June, TikTok has been posting Q&As with these creators, which you can check out here. TikTok’s other Pride initiatives include live music and programming, new rainbow-themed filters and effects, and efforts to generally make TikTok more friendly for the queer community, a welcome change from its self-admitted discriminatory moderation in the past.

TikTok is also putting its money where its mouth is, donating $500k to LGBTQ+ organizations.

“We’re proud that TikTok creates opportunities for people to create and share content that resonates with others and helps them build a stronger community,” reads TikTok’s website. “We’re continually looking for ways to better ourselves in promoting and building an online destination that is inclusive of all people and voices.”
