15 LGBTQIA+ TikTokers You Should Be Following To Cleanse Your FYP

TikTok is a wonderful platform but look, I won’t lie to you, mainstream straight TikTok scares me sometimes. I mean, between straight boys peeing their pants for a TikTok challenge to asking your boyfriend who’s the prettiest Disney princess to trick them into admitting they’re not faithful for not picking you (the straights are at it again), there’s a lot I just don’t understand about mainstream TikTok culture and perhaps never will.

But, if you ever find that your For You Page (FYP) is infected with straight boy content (which is just sometimes staring into the camera and saying shit like “Come here, baby girl”… tf), first, consult your local GP for advice and watch an hour of frogcore and cottagecore, and then, for the love of Lorde, start following these queer TikTokers below. 

From absurd comedy sketches to vogue classes, here are the quintessential TikTokers you should be following rn.

Tyler Gaca

Tyler Gaca (@ghosthoney) is the peak of queer absurd humour on this chaotic app. Tyler is a 25-year-old California-based gay art hoe, who lives with his husband Jihao, their dog Penny, spooky black cat and literal forest of plants. His TikToks vary from sketch comedy to wholesome and low-fi cooking and incredibly adorable moments between him and his husband.

Harrison O’Farrell

Harrison O’Farrell (@urfavboyharry) is a Brisbane-based non-conforming fashion king with a wardrobe full of ‘traditionally femme’ clothing, makeup and other things that deconstruct toxic masculinity. His TikToks are full of fashion montages of him in various fire fits and soft neon and purple makeup looks.

Abe Yoon (@boopyape) is a gay American model and comedian who makes v dumb TikToks that live in my head rent-free. From what it’s like being pearls in bubble tea to the prejudice and microaggressions he faces within the queer male presenting community as a person of colour.

Nick Lehmann (@nickstoptalking) is a New York-based comedian who makes comedy sketches about day to day things from a obnoxious catty gay’s perspective. In one clip, he acts out his first FaceTime date during the Covid-19 pandemic, what he was like at a sleepover as the one gay kid and more.

Gravity Balmain (@GravityBalmain) is a vogue dancer, who recently appeared on the HBO vogue reality TV competition show Legendary. On TikTok, he creates video vogue classes from home. And, ngl, he’s pretty amazing at it.

@gravitybalmain

just uploaded a new full 50 minute class on my Vimeo that goes deep into hands and arms! ~link in bio~

@gravitybalmain

these are the three styles of vogue dance — vogue has as rich and complicated a history and technique base as traditional styles like ballet or jazz

Skylah Simone

Skylah Simone (@sky.luh) is an American TikToker who makes videos about being a tall lesbian who loves and simps over her girlfriend. She’s also a bit of a style icon, tbh.

Elijah De Vil

Elijah De Vil (@thebeesdaddy) is a gay comedian who makes incredibly absurd long bits about the most random of things, and I absolutely am here for all of it. In one video, he finds an old clip of him freaking out after a dream, later explaining that Abraham Lincoln came to him as his sleep paralysis demon. In another, he lip-syncs to Eurovision winner Netta’s “Toy,” in a furry white coat before the clip cuts to a baby doll on the couch with a gun who shoots him point blank.

Towa Bird (@towabird) is a musician who shares TikToks of her jamming out to tunes on her guitar. And, just like St. Amand, all I have to say is you’re welcome.

Julian Rizzo-Smith is a writer and producer. He also claims to be a vine historian, avid connoisseur of low-fi beats, indie hip hop and Kermit memes. In a perfect world, he’d be married to Tyler the Creator, own an Arcanine and a Lapras, and don his own Sailor Scouts uniform. He tweets @GayWeebDisaster, which is also, coincidentally, how one might describe him.
