We know the best way to reach LGBTQ+ youth is online – and what better place to do it than on TikTok? Since joining TikTok’s Creative Learning Fund (CLF) in 2020, we’ve amassed an audience of hundreds of thousands of LGBTQ+ youth who come to our channel for a safe space, to ask the questions they can’t ask anywhere else and find their own online queer community. We couldn’t do it without our amazing TikTok Creators – read below to learn how you can join us. Check back to see when applications are open next!
