The restriction of LGBTQ+ videos on YouTube isn’t only affecting those content creators, it’s affecting those people who watch them.
Those people, many of them children, watch LGBTQ content because they feel connected to these people. They look at these content creators, look at what they’ve struggled with, look at how they can help themselves, and look at how that it really does get better.
At home, they may not be accepted or they are fearful of what would happen if they came out.
I haven’t come out to any of my family except my mom and even still, I haven’t gone into detail with my sexuality with her. She’s the most caring person I know but she just doesn’t understand. Maybe one of these kids feel like me. I have overly religious family members and the only ones that would understand would be my cousin and maybe my two younger siblings.
LGBTQ YouTubers are what helped me come to terms with who I am like Tyler Oakley, MilesChronicles, Gigi Gorgeous, and many many others.
They are what helped me see that I don’t need anyone’s approval and acceptance but my own.
If you’re reading this and are feeling depressed or anxious or confused or whatever, message me. I know what it’s like to struggle. We stick together in this community.

“Owowowow,” you strained as Trevor adjusted your leg on his shoulder.
“I CAN’T SEE PAST YOUR BOOBS,” Trevor yelled from above you.
“We can do it,” you assured him, turning to check your position in the viewfinder.
Ricky snorted from the couch, and pulled out his phone. “(Y/N), stretch your arm out further,” he said, recording you.
You did as Ricky said, pleased to see that you were successful in recreating the yoga pose, but not for long. You began to shake violently under Trevor’s weight.
“I swear, if you even think of dropping me-” Trevor began.
You shook beneath him, your leg slipping, causing you to roll sideways, with Trevor collapsing on top of you. His hands flew out, grasping your hips as you toppled downwards in a fit of laughter.
“Ha ha,” Kian said sarcastically, “You can let go of her now.”
“Okay man,” Trevor laughed, offering you a hand back up.
You hopped back in place, “Okay, last one,” you panted in exhaustion.
JC stared at the computer screen, a smirk spreading across his smug face, “This one.”
“JC!” you groaned, looking at the extremely complicated position he’d chosen out.
“We got this!” Trevor laughed, bouncing up happily on his heels.
Kian glared at the screen, his arms folded over his chest, “I can find you a better one,” he offered grimly.
You sighed and shook your head with a laugh, “We got this,” you said, giving Trevor a big high five.
The pose required one person to lie on their back with their legs in the air as someone else climbed up over their legs, suspended in the air as they would rest their head on the first person’t feet, and their legs held up by them, too.
“Bottom,” called Trevor.
“Thanks for giving me the complicated part,” you grumbled under your breath.
Trevor slid into place, raising his feet up, “Get on me,” he smirked.
You snorted and slapped his foot, “Shut up.”
You hoisted yourself onto Trevor’s feet, and his hands came to your sides as he helped you up. He squeezed your sides causing you to writhe in frustration, “I’m ticklish!” you snapped.
“I know,” he smiled and slid his hands down to help push you up.
Kian glared daggers at Trevor, “Hey pal, wanna get your hands off my girlfriend’s ass?”
“His hands aren’t-” you started. “Never mind,” you corrected yourself.
JC tilted his head to get a better angle, “We should do this challenge together, (Y/N),” he grinned.
Kian gave JC a shove with a roll of his eyes.
“Sorry,” Trevor yawned lazily, fixing you into the right spot over him.
“Bit more,” you said.
You arched your back, Trevor taking your feet in his hands, his eyes blinking up at you.
“Have we done it!?” you exclaimed.
“Wooo,” Ricky hollered, “You bet!”
“Really? I think we should stay like this a second longer to make sure we’re doing it right,” Trevor teased.
“Let me down now,” you giggled.
“Oookay,” Trevor said, letting you fall from the air suddenly.
You yelped out, crumpling onto Trevor’s chest in a heap.
His hands shot up, catching you at the last second and holding you to his front.
“Jerk” you laughed and nudged him with your foot.
Trevor rolled across the floor so that he had you pinned beneath him.
“Please like this video,” you gasped for air, “And subscribe if you want Trevor to GET OFF ME!” you writhed.
“Okay, video over, good job,” Kian said, shutting off the camera.
“Buzzkill,” Trevor raised his eyebrow’s at Kian.
“How bout’ you let me go?” you panted.
“But tickling you is more fun,” Trevor complained, his hands pinching your sides.
You burst out into uncontrollable giggles, your head turning this way and that as you begged Trevor to let you go.
Without warning the pressure on your belly was gone, and you sat bolt upright in confusion. Trevor lay sprawled on the floor, and Kian stood above you, his hand extended.
“My hero,” you smiled and accepted his hand.
Kian smiled weakly, pulling you up from the ground and into his chest. You knocked his front, your head sliding over his shoulder, his own two arms slinking around your waist.
“Mm,” you cooed into his chest, startled by the affection.
JC whispered something at Ricky, who laughed and nodded.
“What?” Kian snapped at them.
“Is someone a bit of a jealous boyfriend?” JC challenged him.
Kian grimaced, releasing you and spinning towards JC, his nostrils flared.
“Come at me,” JC laughed, standing.
Kian made a move to shove JC, but you grabbed his wrist before he could.
“Kian, calm down,” you hissed.
Kian brought his brown eyes back down to yours, his body relaxing a bit. He sighed and shook his head sadly, before simply walking right out the room.
You pouted at a pleased looking JC, “Thanks alot.”
You followed Kian into his bedroom, where he sat perched on the edge of his bed.
“Hey,” you tried.
Kian ran his long fingers through his dark hair, his smile forced, “Hey.”
You sighed and gently shut the door behind you, sinking onto the floor on your knees before Kian.
He kept his eyes glued to his lap, so you bent forward and pecked his rosy lips gingerly to get his attention.
“Talk to me,” you whispered softly, placing a hand in his lap.
Kian’s lips twitched as he entwined his fingers in yours, his gaze holding yours.
“Don’t think badly of me,” he spoke nervously.
“Never would think of it,” you smiled and squeezed Kian’s hand lightly.
“I’m..I don’t know,” he paused, “I don’t like seeing you so close to other guys.”
You raised an eyebrow with a small laugh, “Really?”
Kian blushed furiously, “I don’t want to be the jealous boyfriend.”
“Are you?” you asked.
Kian coughed nervously, shrugging, “Yeah, I am.”
“Kian,” you giggled, pulling him close to your face, “Look at me.”
His eyes sad, he opened his mouth, but you cut him off.
“Babe,” you smiled, “it’s okay to be jealous. But you have to know that I will never think of anyone the way I think of you. You, Kian Lawley, are mine, and only mine.”
Kian’s cheeks warmed under your cold fingertips.
“These lips,” you said, tracing your fingers gently around his mouth, “Mine.”
“Those eyes,” you smiled warmly, “Mine.”
“Every little thing about you, the good, and the bad, are mine,” you breathed.
Kian’s familiar smile crept up on his lips, “I’m the luckiest guy in the whole wide world, so I guess I’m just scared someone else will see what I see in you.”
You shook your head with a laugh, “Doesn’t matter, that won’t change the fact that I only want to be with you.”
Kian chuckled, swinging his head down and back up, his eyes glowing again.
“Wanna show me I’m yours?” he smirked cheekily.
“There’s my boyfriend,” you grinned, bending into his lips. You lifted yourself from your crouched position, Kian’s arms coming around your waist and pulling you up gently into his lap. You wrapped your legs around Kian’s waist, perched in his lap as your lips collided. You slid your arm’s around his neck, smiling into the feeling of his lips on yours, your fingers weaving through Kian’s hair. Kian pressed himself into you, his lips curving happily as they brushed against yours.
You pulled back, your eyes closed, but smiling wide.
Before you could open your eyes, Kian’s hands came to the small of your back, forcing you to bend back into him. He dropped a kiss on your lips, nose, forehead, and any skin he could reach. Your skin grew bright from the warmth of his lips all over your face. You opened your eyes, meeting Kian’s round and unblinking one’s.
“I liked that,” you said, your eyes flickering across Kian’s face.
Kian did his adorable little lip bite that melted your heart into a puddle.
