Are you supporting LGBTQ content creators? Did you even realize how many LGBTQ content creators were out there? If you answered no to any one of those questions, what is stopping you?
It’s proven that the major media outlets do not create content that speaks to the needs and desires of LGBTQ people. It’s a shock when you think about it. After all, our money spends they same as anyone else’s. In many cases LGBTQ people dont have children, so their money can be spent on more extravagant and fun items.
But it doesn’t stop there…
LGBTQ people consume and share things that they feel speak to them. There are many YouTube Channels devoted to gay gamers, gaymers. They talk about games with LGBTQ content as well as their favorite games. It can be reassuring to know there are games out there oriented around us, in positive instances.
There are even more LGBTQ content creators out there. So here is a list of 9 LGBTQ bloggers that you need to check out, today
9. My Son Wears Heels
This is a blog written by Julie Tarney. She is a speaker, author, consultant, trainer and a mother of a non-binary child. Her blog is the result of her book by the same title.
Often, we are more familiar with stories of parents turning their backs on their transgender or non-binary children.
At the age of 2, Tarney’s child came to her and said, “inside my head, I’m a girl.” She saw this as an experience to grow and to show her child unconditional love. She had been supporting her child long before the iusage of the terms transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming.
Tarney also used her personal experiences to help other businesses become more trans-inclusive and welcoming of their transgender employees. If you are looking for advice, education, or support in your life or the life of your LGBTQ child, be sure to check her out. Also, check out her post, “When your child comes out to you.”
8. Rhonda’s Escape
“I have spent a significant amount of your life questioning my gender identity and do not fit into the binary male/female continuum.” – Rhonda Williams
Rhonda started her blog on July 19, 2015 as a way to share their passion for fashion and their life. Their blog posts include personal musings and gender identity articles they have found helpful.
Rhonda writes in a very easy, conversational style. They focus more on content, as opposed to the click bait SEO format many bloggers seem to use. (ahem – even me.) Rhonda also shares inspiring stories and gives place for their online friends to express themselves in guest posts. My favorite so far is Rhonda’s post about Ruth who transitioned at a young 81 years of age. You can check out,” Age Has Nothing To Do With It…”
