From a sexy pair of identical twins to an archive of queer icons, this week your Instagram feed is going to get a healthy dose of inspiration, equality and fabulousness. From Chile to Singapore to London to Nigeria (via Sweden), we’ve got your #followfriday covered.

These identical twins, hailing from Iraq, are 200% gorgeous. They’re gay, Christian and Arab, with a pair of strong personalities that present a message of equality in a fun-loving and easily relatable way.

The Zakar twins’ Instagram feed is undeniably a thirst trap, but there’s a lot more to these twins than their dashing good looks.

They’ve recently written a book about their coming out experience called Pray the Gay Away. It’s got heaps of attitude, humor and personality, just like the boys themselves.

And there’s an app, too. “My Twin” is a resource for anyone who has questions about their sexuality and fears or worries about coming out. The boys say, “I had a twin when I was coming out, and now so do you.” Could they be any cuter?

Queer Nigerian-Swedish photographer Mikael Chukwuma’s Limit(less) project is one of the most important (and spellbindingly beautiful) works on LGBT Africans that we’ve come across.

The documentary photography project looks at the stories of dozens of LGBTQ African immigrants in North America and Europe, telling their stories with the goal of dispelling the myth that it’s “un-African” to be gay.
