Google spotlights LGBTQIA+ YouTube creators’ self-discovery journey & building safe communities

Every LGBTQIA+ person’s coming out story is different, showing the unique, colorful and sometimes difficult journeys they’ve taken to discover their true selves. In the fifth edition of its annual Pride Conversations, Google Philippines led an insightful discussion featuring YouTube creators on self-discovery and building a safe space to help them navigate their LGBTQIA+ identity.

Hosted by multi-faceted creative and comedian Baus Rufo, the event highlighted the inspiring stories of LGBTQIA+ YouTube creators Roanne Carreon, Joshua Cruz, Jan Angelo Ong, and Yani Villarosa.

“Finding your queer identity is a never-ending process. Even if you’re out and seem like you have it all figured out, you’re still building that equation for your truth, and your authenticity. That’s why communities and representation matter because you need them to constantly be shown that these are the many possibilities that you have access to [as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community],” Baus Rufo said.
