Dylan Mulvaney has flown to Peru “to feel something” and “feel safe” months after the transgender-identifying activist partnered with Bud Light and sparked a nationwide backlash. 

Mulvaney, a man who says that he is a woman, announced on TikTok this week that he was in Peru on a solo trip. Videos posted to the social media platform show Mulvaney alongside llamas and at Machu Picchu, an Incan city in the Andes Mountains. 

“I’ve seen a lot of llamas. The people here are so kind. I feel very safe here,” Mulvaney said on TikTok. “It’s a little sad that I had to leave my country to feel safe but that will get better eventually.”

Mulvaney added that he had done “shaman ceremonies” that were like therapy. 

“I came here to feel something. And I definitely have. I have done shaman ceremonies that were like 10 years worth of therapy, it was wild,” Mulvaney said. “Most of all this trip has me feeling like my own best friend again. And that is the best feeling in the world.”

Mulvaney’s Peru trip comes after Anheuser-Busch lost billions of dollars in market value after a partnership with Mulvaney, where the activist was sent a Bud Light can with his face on it. Mulvany blasted Bud Light last month, saying that they did not do enough to “publicly stand” up for him. 

“I took a brand deal with a company that I loved. And I posted a sponsored video to my page,” Mulvaney said. “And it must have been a slow news week, because the way that this ad got blown up, you would have thought I was like, on a billboard, or on a TV commercial or something major, but no, it was just an Instagram video.”

Anheuser-Busch CEO Brendan Whitworth has not said that the partnership was a mistake, but has said he doesn’t want the beer brand to be something that “divides people.” 


“And I was waiting for the brand to reach out to me, but they never did. And for months now, I’ve been scared to leave my house, I have been ridiculed in public, I’ve been followed,” Mulvaney added. 

Sales of Bud Light plummeted following the Mulvaney partnership, and the beer has since lost its place as one of the country’s 10 most popular beers, falling to number 14 in recent customer surveys.
