"Humor is one of the best ways to lower somebody's defenses because once you've got them laughing at you they are way more willing to hear your point." Introducing one of India's funniest and edgiest comedy groups, @allindiabakchod (AIB). AIB has revolutionized “funny” in India with the country’s first-ever, and most-heard, comedy podcast. The group then went on to attract over 2.5 million subscribers to become one of the biggest channels in India. With a passion for social good, AIB leads an emerging group of digital crusaders advocating for the cause of net neutrality in India.
For their YouTube Creators for Change project, they use comedy to highlight the harassment and hatred women face online in an attempt to foster dialogue around the safety of digital environments.
“Hi I’m Jack Francis, and by now you’ve realized there’s something wrong with me.” Well, we wouldn’t say there’s anything wrong with Jack Francis, but he’s definitely inimitable. And that’s partially because Jack has Tourette Syndrome, a condition that makes him shout curse words and suffer extreme ticks at stressful moments throughout the day. But there’s a lot more to Jack than his disease and that’s why we subscribed to his channel as soon as we found it. For starters, he documents his experience to generate awareness and help others understand and manage issues of their own. Important stuff. But aside from that there’s also the sheer swag he brings to everything he does … from tattoo sessions to haircuts to just hanging out with friends.
Don’t take our word for it though! Click the link in our bio to learn more about @j.franciss

“We are trying our best to show people that Indonesia is a multicultural nation.” Introducing @CameoProject, a collective of Indonesian comedians who use laughter to affect positive change and spread awareness about problems their country faces. Through comedy skits, vlogs, news spots, and musical spoofs, each member of this diverse group works hard to challenge taboos and question the status quo, all while putting a smile on your face.
As #CreatorsforChange, Cameo has partnered with an NGO called “Maarif Institute” that has a wide network of students across the country. Together they aim to educate high school and university students in 10 cities in Indonesia about the importance of creating positive content.

Trans activist and creator from Fox & Owl, Ugla Stefanía (@uglastefania) is fighting for change within the LGBTQIA community. “Today we went to 10 Downing Street for an LGBTQIA reception and listened to Theresa May give a speech on equality. During her speech she mentioned transphobic bullying being a serious problem and that the Gender Recognition Act (2004) was being reviewed. Afterwards we had a brief chat with her about non binary legal recognition and the importance of non binary inclusion in the law.“ Photo by @uglastefania
