Popular culture in the LGBTQ+ community

Many contemporary young LGBTQ+ people amongst these participants are big consumers of video content (on social media – mainly TikTok and YouTube but also Twitch, Discord and Twitter), music, films, gaming and TV or streaming services. They seek out content that:

  • represents themselves or the LGBTQ+ community
  • provides role models or examples of lived experience (good for themselves and to help educate others e.g. family members)
  • shows people being true to their complete selves
  • gives a sense of belonging
  • provides fun entertainment
  • offers a topic of rich conversation with their friends
