Here are the Most Hilarious Reactions to Those Queer IKEA Couches

IKEA is a wonderful place where people who can’t afford furniture (aka me) can go and buy really confusing pieces of wood that can then be turned into furniture.

Honestly IKEA, we need one thing and one thing only from you:

Make it happen for Pride 2022.
