How to Write Memorable Gay Instagram Captions

We’ve written a lot of caption guides (check them out if you like!), usually about specific topics like lake days, mountains, 30th birthday parties, and more. Gay Instagram captions are a different beast, because they’re about you and who you love. Our tips? Well, here goes:

  • You do you! Whether you post a cozy selfie of you and your other half or an epic snapshot of a local pride celebration, you absolutely don’t need to follow trends when you write Instagram captions. (We’d still advise looking up the latest hashtags, though, just to stay relevant and get discovered.) There’s no one way to be gay… or to write gay Instagram captions. Just share your personality and thoughts, and you’re good to go.
  • Having said that, you can never go wrong with a touch of humor. We love making our Instagram captions rhyme when it feels right or playing with puns, idioms, and alliteration. The thesaurus can always help you out in that department.
  • If possible, keep your pride Instagram captions lighthearted, upbeat, and personal. Spreading positivity and personal anecdotes is a great way to melt your followers’ hearts.
  • Never, ever, forget that emojis exist! You’ve got a ton of fun ones to choose from, like 🌈, 🎉, 👑, 💖, 🌟, 🎊, and even simply 😎. They’ll all go a long way if you want to add some fire to your gay Instagram captions!

Now, it’s entirely possible (we guess) that you read those tips, thought to yourself, “That’s right, I’ll just caption my posts however I want,” and are now good to go. If not, you’ve got another option — scroll down to discover a veritable fountain of gay captions for Instagram. See any captions you like? Feel free to copy and paste them to your feed or tweak them to suit your personality better!
