Meet one of the artists, disruptors, educators, groundbreakers, innovators, and storytellers who all helped make the world a better place for LGBTQ+ people.

Levi Chambers is an LGBTQ+ media leader who first made a name for himself as the founder and editor in chief of Pride, a sister property of Out. In 2019, he expanded his work and founded Rainbow Media, an LGBTQ-owned media company that seeks to amplify queer voices that might otherwise remain unheard. These voices also supported Chambers, who won the Out100 Readers’ Choice distinction in an online poll.

“I founded Rainbow Media with a clear vision: to create a beacon for the queer community, a space where their stories and experiences take precedence,” says Chambers. “For us, it’s more than just content; we’re dedicated to celebrating LGBTQ+ people.”

Rainbow Media offers many services, including content creation, influencer activation, social media marketing, and LGBTQ+ brand consulting. The company has also launched several queer communities on social media, including @LGBT, @LGBTQ, @Pride, and @Gayety. These channels have become critical hubs for LGBTQ+ representation and collaboration, with more than 10 million followers and subscribers. This year Rainbow Media was honored with the Webby People’s Voice Award.

Chambers’s journey has not been without challenges. “The most significant obstacle we face continues to be the pervasive censorship of queer stories on online platforms and social media,” he says. “Straight, cisgender people don’t understand what it’s like to be queer or trans while online. This oppressive environment directly marginalizes LGBTQ+ voices, making authentic representation challenging. While we’ve made significant strides, the battle is every day.”

“With every LGBTQ+ story we tell, we’re ensuring people see themselves celebrated online, and maybe we illuminate a path for the queer tomorrows.” @levichambers
