Trans-identifying TikTok influencer Dylan Mulvaney was named to Forbes’ list of “30 Under 30 Social Media,” the publication announced this week.

Forbes stated in the article that the list was compiled “with the help of nominations from the public – as well as expertise from Forbes tech journalists and judges from all corners of creatordom.” The outlet added that it includes “young founders, industry leaders and online stars transforming the creator economy and future of the internet.” Forbes described the “creator economy” as a “$250 billion industry estimated to roughly double over the next five years.”

Others on the list include comedians Alan Chikin Chow and Steven He, fashion influencer Alix Earle, and disabled content creator Molly Burke. 

Mulvaney, 26, became popular on TikTok for the creator’s “Days of Girlhood” series, which documented the process of Mulvaney’s so-called gender transition. The social media star made headlines after doing a promotional campaign with Bud Light, which led to massive brand boycotts costing parent company Anheuser-Busch millions in lost revenue.


Forbes’ description for Mulvaney mentioned the “Days of Girlhood” series, saying it attracted “more than 1 billion views.” 

The article also included a quote from Mulvaney which said, “Whether somebody’s trans or not, I just hope they can watch my videos and feel inspired to unlock a new part of themselves.”

Mulvaney shared the digital cover on Instagram, writing in the caption, “Businesswoman special!!! This was my dream, I couldn’t be more grateful. And buckle up, we’re just getting started.”

“I now realize that when I work with a brand, they will forever be a part of my story, going forward,” Mulvaney told Forbes, referencing the Bud Light controversy. “And I want there to be a mutual respect – and not only for me, but also for my community.”

“I think I am becoming a bit of a businesswoman,” the influencer added. “As much as I love the creative side, I love getting smarter: I want to know everything, and how it all works. Of course being in front of the camera, but I love the idea of producing and I think, why not learn it all.”
