It’s important to diversify the content we consume—social media included—which is why Catcall is sharing diverse influencers you should follow in a new series. (Check out the first in the series, Why You Need to Follow Fat Influencers).
Maybe you’re a part of the LGBTQ+ community looking for some queer pals, or you’re an ally realizing that you don’t follow any already, here are some highly recommended content creators you should follow.
P.S. Did you know that Catcall is filled with 66% of queer individuals, and our leadership team is 100% queer? Feel free to follow us on our socials too.😘

Matt Bernstein is a Jewish queer activist. If you don’t follow him, there’s still a chance that you’ve seen his posts. Matt’s posts are usually purple graphics filled with information about LGBTQ+ culture, activism, politics, and more.
