Don’t put those rainbow flags away just yet – Pride can be celebrated all year round on this island of ours.

As Pride month draws to a close, it’s worth remembering that Ireland’s LGBTQ+ online creators churn out the gold content all year round, and are always worth a follow for a giggle or two. If you’re looking to shake up your For You page, TikTok have compiled a list of their favourite Irish LGBTQ+ accounts from podcasters to sketch comics, with iconic content being the common denominator.

With 29 million likes and a sketch for every scenario, Chris Murphy will brighten up your day with mini-series’s such as Gay or Nay, Toxic Man vs Gay and Karen Vs Gay. Gold, all.
