Most of the entries on this list focus on one lady (or couple), but The Gay Women Channel features various different hosts for diverse series; sometimes the topic is sexuality or gender identity, sometimes it’s a cat video (because legally, every seventh video on the web must be a cat video) but you’ll always be laughing in the end. Photo: Carlie and Doni via Twitter This musical comedy duo met in 2005 and began writing songs about their IRL experiences (being unemployed, being single) which has branched out into just hilarious videos in general.She’s a keen advocate of safe, consensual sex (as I hope everyone reading this is), honest about her own experiences with issues like bullying and dating, and promotes body positivity and self-love wherever she can. Basically, if you have a teen in your life send them to her channel (regardless of their sexual orientation/gender identity). They have several different series on the channel including The Lesbian Guide to Lesbianing, Pillow Talk with Adrianna and Sarah, Til Lease Do Us Part and Gay Aunt Barbara. How could you not like beautiful women with a regular segment called Wake N’ Bake where they do things like fry hot dogs in marijuana oil?Photo: Lacie and Robin via Twitter This married lesbian couple have been together for longer than some of the people reading this have been alive and this means that they have an absolute treasure trove of advice for how to deal with long-term relationships, homophobia, and the Dead Lesbians tv troupe.However, my absolute favourite video from them is this one on the Trumpocalyse Bunker. One-half of You Tube couple Rosie and Rose, Rosie Spaughton takes on hair and beauty tutorials, Vlogs, and Q As.In 2012, she uploaded a video on Bisexuality: Myths V Facts. Even her non-sketch videos are hilarious, like her food tasting videos and her drunk Q&As.As a fellow introvert, I really appreciated her vlog on icebreakers.
Not only does she do a fair amount of comedy videos, like 17 Ways to Pretend You’re Listening, but also takes the time to discuss mental health issues like the importance of self-esteem and what depression feels like (which really hit home). Photo: Amber’s Closet via Twitter When I first got linked to Amber’s channel, it was a clothes swap challenge with her girlfriend, Ava, and I felt Amber’s pain at wearing fake eyelashes.
She says that you should start up a conversation about Beyoncé because everybody likes Beyoncé- that’s brilliant advice.
Even my grandma wants to tell you that Beyoncé is beautiful (and her knowledge of current music stopped with Dusty Springfield). Are you about to hit subscribe on sixteen new You Tube channels?
She tackles the trans bathroom ordinance in a video entitled: “What if YOU couldn’t use the bathroom?
”, and mental health issues like anxiety and stress.
