So motherf*ckers, this is a gay blog, written by me, Mark, a gay man. This week I’m gonna walk you through 5 really GAY ways to become TikTok famous. Got it? Good. Here are my top 5 tips…
1) Do what I do 🤪.
Jokes jokes jokes I only have 80k followers… which I’m aware sounds like a humblebrag but that is a drop in the ocean compared to the Big Boys out there. I don’t have the answer, however, I do post every day and 99% of the stuff I post is about being gay. I find it easy(ish) to write gay content and also it seems to be better to have a narrow niche (my name for my arsehole before I became a power bottom) and a devoted fanbase than being broad but bland (my name for my first boyfriend).
This is gay and successful. Seriously though, if you have any type of dancing talent or even the ability to learn a dance and execute it then get on TikTok and hop on the latest trends. Here’s a vid/trend I’m obsessed w recently. I follow mainly gay comedy accounts and dance accounts cos they’re just so aesthetically pleasing when done well. Imo the best ones are the people you wouldn’t expect. So if you have a grandad then get him to twerk or whatever. But if he dies of a heart attack I have zero liability.
Again, gay and successful. If you’re good at lip-syncing and you’ve done it a ton of times in your local gay bar (or just at home) then you’ve got all the required ingredients to become Tiktok famous. Find a song or a scene from a movie and then think about a really relatable caption that suits the mood. An example might be playing the audio of Braveheart shouting “Freedom” but the visuals are you walking away from a house and the caption is “When you dump your toxic bf”. Actually that’s q good might do it later 🤪.
Clearly this literally goes against everything I’ve said above but the shit I love the most is just totally batshit stuff. Just ordinary people being properly weird. So I dunno, grab your cat and go dancing in the rain or just stare into the camera eating a sandwich for an entire minute. An incredible recent example is the TikTok below about a pigeon at pride. Killed me for a week. An example from my TikTok (ooft self-promo shoot me) is my idiotic video about being gay at the court of Henry VIII. Super random, super niche (opposite of my bum these days lmao) but went well.
But, actually. The gay community is numerous, powerful and content-hungry. And it’s not just gays either; a lot of straight women are obsessed with gay culture. And plenty of straight guys have ‘fessed to me that they are secretly really into my stuff (by which I mean my content, not my junk, #IWish) too. So embrace the gayness. Sassy anecdotes about your life; terrible Grindr stories; facts about LGBTQIA+ struggles around the world; speaking truth to straight people. One of my most successful strands of content is “Explaining Gay Sh*t to Straight Guys” – see below. Happy TikToking. XX
