InstaHunk: Getting to Know Out Actor and YouTuber Max Emerson

Shawn Laib READ TIME: 4 MIN.

Max Emerson has found ways to remain influential in LGBTQ+ media for over a decade. The 35-year-old hunky YouTube star has dabbled in music videos, sitcoms, and has even tried his hand at directing to show the many colorful aspects of his life. Emerson never quite became a star actor after cameos in shows like "Glee" and "The Real O'Neals," but his 1.1 million Instagram followers show that queer fans care about keeping up with his vacations and adventures.

Emerson may be an expert at thirst trapping, but he tries to maintain a delicate balance between PG-rated and more risqué content. Let's look at his most exciting posts from the last couple of years!

Nothing's better than seeing a happy, thriving gay couple on IG! Emerson celebrates his boyfriend, Andrés Camilo, and the six years they had spent together so far in January 2022. Emerson and Camilo have shown their romance on YouTube since 2016, and they are engaged to be married in 2024.

Emerson has gotten into comedy skits on IG in recent years. This funny couple's scene with Camilo shows how different the two are when it comes to waking up early or sleeping in late. Camilo was ready to rise and shine after Daylight Savings Time, but Emerson just wanted to get back under the covers for some extra z's.

Emerson doesn't get involved in politics that often, but here he rallies a group of Floridians who opposed the anti-LGBTQ+ laws in the state that were signed by Ron DeSantis in 2022. Chanting "We Say Gay," Emerson encourages the crowd to stand up for their rights and fight back against homophobic laws passed by bigoted politicians.

Emerson teases that Camilo needs to be taken out with the rest of the junk in the house to maintain a clean home. Differences in organization and home maintenance always remains a sticky subject in domestic life around the world, or maybe just for these two adorable men!

Emerson satirizes the tipping culture in the United States right now with an exaggerated look at some of the most ridiculous places people are asked for a tip. Even the family dog is obliged to throw in a few extra dollars at the checkout line.
