The Most Followed TikTok Accounts Advocating For LGBTQ+ Rights

Pride month is fast approaching. There are multiple ways brands can get involved and display their allyship during the month of June. 

Being an ally of the LGBTQ+ community is not only a decent thing to do, but also opens your brand up to a new, invaluable audience. As we know, new audiences equal higher chances at driving engagement, increasing brand awareness and gaining more followers. 

Too many brands have had a brush with performative advocacy in the past, so we’re here to put them onto the most followed TikTok accounts advocating for LGBTQ+ rights in the hope that they can learn something and turn their inauthenticity into allyship. Recruiting the help of a TikTok marketing agency is always a great idea, should this be your first Pride campaign, as they will know how to keep things professional and authentic. 

Without further ado, here are the top 22 most followed TikTok accounts and LGBTQ+ advocates taking TikTok by storm.

We need to stop with compliments at the expense of degrading another person/woman. It only perpetuates toxic beauty standards, hate, and distorted self-esteem and body image. @Dylan Mulvaney sending you my love and soldier on sis! #transisbeautiful #learnontiktok #beyou

@jayhawkridge

Jay’s content is frank, upfront, tongue-in-cheek and informative when it comes to living with HIV. Approximately 38 million people are living with HIV, globally, so knowledge is paramount when it comes to discussions surrounding it. With his bio saying “education we could all do with”, it is great to see accounts dedicated to breaking stigmas and raising awareness.

@zoestoller

Social worker and queer writer, Zoe, provides TikTok users with endless educational content surrounding almost any and every LGBTQ+ topic you can think of. From explaining queer-related terms to helping others find their identity/sexuality, Zoe makes their content easily digestible.

@zoestoller

?? Here’s your reminder that lesbians don’t have to be women! ? Some people see the identity lesbian as very rooted within the gender binary of man and woman, and so they define lesbian as “women who love women.” And it’s valid for anyone who wants to define it as that — but in truth, the word lesbian can go so much further beyond just the gender binary. There are nonbinary lesbians. Lesbians who might connect to womanhood in a way that’s different from how society traditionally defines it. Lesbians who might connect to manhood! There can be lesbians that connect with any gender— because it doesn’t have to be constricted within that gender binary. As such, some people choose to define lesbian as “non-men who love non-men” — but even that label doesn’t feel comfy for everyone, as it defines lesbianism in opposition to manhood, and it also excludes any lesbians who do connect with manhood in their identity. In the end, you’re allowed to define the word lesbian in whatever way feels most validating for you — while also keeping in mind that anyone of any gender identity can use the label lesbian if that’s what feels best for them!❤️ ? How do you define the word lesbian? Do you have any questions about expanding the label beyond the gender binary? ? #zoestoller #lesbianvisibilityweek #lesbianvisibilityday #nonbinarylesbiansarevalid
