Joy Unfiltered

TikTok’s Photo Crop Filter Puts Queer Joy on Display

Good Afternoon– have you heard the good word of Photo Crop?

It’s no longer just a thing you do with your crappy iPhone photos to make sure all the dildos in your studio apartment stay safely out of frame. Now, it’s a hilarious TikTok filter that delivers true results. If the results you want are laughing hysterically for hours until someone literally has to peel you off the ground.

This filter is making the rounds with all the queers, and it’s uniformly hilarious each time. I don’t know how, I don’t know why– I only know that the way it makes users dance and squirm around to get in frame while “The Hustle” plays in the background is a gay delight and a true joy. 

Don’t believe me? See for yourself.

Some folks even used the filter as a poignant metaphor for trying to fit into the “boxes” of a society that prioritizes neurotypicals, which is pretty brilliant.

Mostly, the app just shows queer folks being happy, looking fine, and having a gay old time, in more than one sense.
