In 2021, content is king, and all-LGBTQ+ social media collective Pride House LA knows exactly the kind of content that resonates with young queer kids. Most popular on TikTok, where they have over 300,000 followers and millions and millions of likes, Pride House LA — a foursome consisting of members Kent Boyd, Garrett Clayton, Jeka Jane, and Mollee Gray — helped fellow Out100 honoree JoJo Siwa during her public coming out this year. Considering all of the entertaining videos they produce, it’s easy to see why they are so beloved.
“The main mission of Pride House LA is to be the representation we wish we had when we were younger,” the group says in a statement to Out.
“I’m most proud of consistently practicing self-love in a space with Mollee, Jeka, and Garrett!” Boyd says. “The synergy we create is pretty awesome. Family vibes all day!”
“I’m proud of the love and opportunity that’s come along with Pride House LA,” Clayton adds. “I am so proud of all these things and many more that further prove that queer people deserve success and joy in this world.”
“I am beyond proud to be in the process of changing my legal name and gender marker,” Jane, who is married to his Pride House member Gray, says. “It’s a monumental moment that seemed so far away, but is finally happening!”
With the world slowly but surely getting more and more back to normal, Pride House LA hopes to continue spreading positivity to their fans and supporters from all over. And with a successful merch line already under their belt and the release of their self-titled Pride House LA podcast, they’re on track to keep doing that.
“Visibility and representation in our community matters. We are proud to be loud and confident with our queerness, in hopes it can help at least one beautiful soul feel confident in being who they are!” — R.E., Photo Casie Wendel
