PRIDE MONTH: Five queer couples you absolutely must follow on Instagram

If your IG feed is feeling a bit dry as of late, you might be looking for some inspiration to spice up your timeline. And by dry I mean straight. And by timeline, I mean the non-chronological, hot mess that is Instagram right now. But without further ado, here are 5 queer couples you absolutely need to follow on Instagram:

Chella Man and MaryV Benoit

Rising to online fame after ‘them.’ magazine shared his self-documented journey on testosterone, the genderqueer artist has been defiant in challenging people’s misconceptions surrounding gender.


Chella’s relationship with MaryV, a photographer and performance artist living in New York, is bound to make you jealous (even if you’re not single). I mean, just look how damn adorable they are together:


If you’re looking for travel goals, body goals, life goals, food goals, couple goals – then look no further. Yummertime is a shared account between Brock and Chris, and will be perhaps one of the most beautiful accounts to bless your timeline. Seriously, look at it:



Rhys Kosakowski and Indar Isaiah Smith

Rhys Kosakowski’s incredible ballet moves are, on their own, enough to justify a follow. But his relationship with artist Indar Isaiah Smith is guaranteed to make you melt. Check out their latest post together, laid against a bed of daisies, being cute and shit. Are we the only ones that think this is what the cover of ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ should’ve looked like?

And we’re obsessed.
