Dating another woman can be tricky. You meet a stranger woman (sometimes a friend) that you might like, and then you do an activity together, and you use that experience to decide if you want to keep doing activities with her in the future.
It’s a weird world, and it can be pretty tricky to navigate. Fortunately, a lot of your favourite lesbian YouTubers have lived that life, and they’ve used their experiences to impart some knowledge onto the rest of us singletons.
So put down your HER app for a while and scroll on for some real dating expertise…
For some reason, this generation seems to migrate towards expression on social media. I can’t say that I’m not wrapped up in it myself. One of the things that social media has brought us in the gay community is a way to network and find each other. Not too long ago, you had to hang out in the “gay scene” in order to know other gay people. Thank goodness we can find new lesbians to talk to without leaving the house now! (I’m not really sure if that’s sarcastic or not.)
In a way, this social media outlet has even created its own brand of celebrity – that is, the viral sensation celebrity. It’s something extra special because these viral celebrities often take the time to speak with their fans and actually get to know their community on a personal basis.
Read on to find the 5 lesbian YouTube channels you should be following, along with a selection of my favorite videos.
1. Bria and Chrissy
Bria and Chrissy have been some of my favorite lesbian celebs (celesbians?) for quite a while now. Their love is inspiring, and they’re also super funny and talented. If you haven’t had the chance to check out their channel yet, you won’t regret it. My favorite Bria and Chrissy video? “10 Worst Ways to Come Out”.
Hart is something else entirely. She also falls in the “funny and talented” category that Bria and Chrissy do, but she has a wealth of skits and characters that she uses to convey her message. One of my favorite Hart videos? “Lesbian Issues” – an amusing look at some of the things that we, as lesbians, need to stop doing. I challenge you to not get it stuck in your head!
3. Arielle Scarcella
Unlike most of the lesbians on this list, Arielle takes the unpopular approach of taking on the “serious” issues with a funny twist. Of course, personally I prefer the comedy, that doesn’t mean that her serious issues aren’t important. My favorite video of hers is “Sh*t that Scares Lesbians in Bed”. Pure comedy gold!
4. Hannah Hart
Hannah Hart doesn’t really market herself “as a lesbian”, which makes her different from many of the others on this list. She doesn’t cater to the gay community, but to people in general, which means that her videos have a bit broader of an audience than some of the other channels listed here. The fact is that she’s a comedy genius, and she’s sure to cement herself as one of your favorite comedians on YouTube. My favorite Harto video is “How to Ask if a Girl is Gay”, which totally explores the awkwardness of hitting on a girl who might be straight.
5. Haley Kiyoko
Unlike the rest of the lesbians on this list, Haley Kiyoko is primarily a musician rather than a comedienne. She’s got a nice sound that’s reminiscent of older pop songs (she brings to mind Aly and AJ from the early 2000’s, for me at least). If you’re looking for a lesbian musical influence to add to your play lists, don’t miss Haley Kiyoko. My favorite of her songs? “Girls Like Girls”.
What Other Lesbians Do You Follow?
I am always on the lookout for new lesbians to follow on YouTube – and I am very curious to see your suggestions! What lesbians do you follow? Who inspires you? Share with us in the comments!
A team of LGBT YouTubers have clubbed together to make this reaction video in response to the shocking video Daniel Pierce posted last week on Youtube, which shows him being confronted by his “Christian” family, which was posted to YouTube last week.
“Hey guys! So here is us and a bunch of our fellow YouTuber friends reacting to a family not accepting there gay son as he comes out to them!
We wish we could show you everyones reaction video individually because they were so amazing and we would also like to say a big thank you guys for being apart of our video! your opinions mean a lot to us and everyone out there”
The original video, filmed by Pierce, captures the moment his father, grandparents, step-mother and his father’s sister accused him of “making a choice” and choosing his sexuality. He said his family staged what he described as a “pray the gay away” intervention after he first revealed his sexuality to his stepmother in October. In the five minute clip, the 19-year-old from Georgia can be heard explaining he has not chosen his sexuality, to which a woman responds: “No, you can deny it all you want to but I believe in the word of God, and God creates nobody that way. It’s a path that you have chosen to choose.”
Mr Pierce published the video has amassed over three million hits, and his partner opened a gofundme page asking for donations to cover his basic living costs. The fund raised ver $90,000.
Ah the things that straight guys say to lesbians. We’ve heard them, we’ve even entertained them, but here YouTubers Hart, Bria & Chrissy, Anna, Jess, Steph, Stevie, and Arielle, laying down the classics lesbians lines they have heard from straight guys. Very funny, so please watch.
The self described ‘lesbian Jiminy Cricket’ Arielle Scarcella, has massive YouTube following. She have been posting videos for the past 4 years, which break some of those lesbian and gay taboos. We love her work and we love her latest post where she discusses lesbian slang with her mother.
My mom and I have a pretty good relationship. She’s seen me through 4 girlfriends and 8 years of being out of the closet. So I thought it would be fun, to test my moms knowledge of lesbian culture / slang. How many of these do you know?
