Abstract

YouTube is a powerful platform for queer South Africans to represent their lives authentically and to form supportive communities with other LGBTQ+ people. Challenging the erasure of queer people and realities in mainstream media, queer vloggers can point a mirror to homophobic and transphobic societies and respond to widespread feelings of isolation and social stigma.
