ROLL CALL: LGBTQ+ People on IG to Follow | Jan. 31, 2022 Edition
In light of certain social media platforms purposing deleting and shadow banning LGBTQ+ accounts and creators, Queer on the Street wants to fight back. Every Monday, Queer on the Street posts a round-up, or what we like to call a "roll call," of LGBTQ+ accounts, creators, musicians and every day LGBTQ+ people to follow on Instagram.
Reading, watching and listening to LGBTQ+ people can open up a different world to folks who are in search of finding people similar to them, something else, and more. It's not a new concept, but connections can be made with people online either and in different ways. For example, this can look like a follower-content creator relationship, collaborations, finding someone new to talk to in the comment sections, or whatever. Sometimes these connections can lead to everlasting friendships.
Supporting LGBTQ+ people in any capacity is crucial. In no particular order, here are the people and organizations for this week:
