“I was taught that being myself was not only okay, but encouraged—and by being unapologetically yourself, you thrive and inspire others to thrive.”
“Pop culture phenomenon, social rights advocate, and the most prominent LGBTQ+ voice on YouTube, Tyler Oakley brings you his first collection of witty, personal, and hilarious essays written in the voice that’s earned him more than 10 million followers across social media.” (Summary from Goodreads)
Tyler Oakley posted his first YouTube video in 2007, never expecting much to come from it. He definitely never thought that one day he would amass a following of over eight million subscribers on YouTube. Tyler has taken the online world by storm with successes including interviews with Michelle Obama and One Direction (both of which each have a chapter in the book, and one of them really pulls at the ole heartstrings), a worldwide live tour, a chart-topping podcast Psychobabble and a documentary titled Snervous. It’s crazy to think that all this started because a boy decided to film videos in his living room and upload them to YouTube.
