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.

Emerson seems to love the outdoors and the beauty of Mother Nature. It helps to keep him in shape and enjoy the world. Even the most seasoned hiking veterans need some suggestions for new trails, though. Emerson asks for some tips while showing his shirtless thirst pictures in this fun slideshow.

Emerson feels a little flirty with some fruits and vegetables in this cheeky post with Camilo during a trip to Colombia. Bananas, carrots, and bee keepers all litter the slideshow as Emerson takes fans into the exotic nature of South America with some innuendos in the captions!

Emerson asks his fans for help convincing Camilo that the couple bring more dogs into the household with some adorable puppies! Fans want to know how anyone could ever say no to Emerson, with his ernest smile and charming innocence. We know we certainly couldn't!

Emerson celebrates Pride Month in June with a homemade rainbow. Using the sun and his garden hose, Emerson symbolizes the happiness and joy that queer people usher into the world on a daily basis, even if other people try to take these emotions away with hate and homophobia.

Emerson participated in the Writers Guild of America Strikes in Hollywood last summer with a cheesy saying to get the attention of the bosses upstairs. Emerson's fans were surprised he was part of the writer's union, and applauded him for walking the picket line with his peers.

Emerson takes sexy up a notch with a bad-boy look on his motorcycle. Some fans praised Emerson for his positive energy, while others said he needed to remember to wear his helmet. Safety first!

Emerson gets thirst-worthy in this nearly-naked photoshoot showing his chiseled body and skimpy underwear. Somehow, the influencer maintains a level of classiness despite not having any clothes on!

Emerson pokes fun at models and social media users who take advantage of OnlyFans without having any other interesting links to show off in their profile. Commenters talked about how too much amateur porn online makes it hard to differentiate between influencers.

Emerson shares a steamy look at him and Camilo fixing up their home, replete with an underwear shot of Camilo. We're not sure the lack of clothes was necessary, but we're not complaining!
