The decade's most triggering comedy
Trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney, whose partnership with Bud Light catalyzed a loss of tens of billions of dollars in market cap value for its parent company Anheuser-Busch, is going to charge nearly double what he charged last year for a speech on a college campus — a whopping $40,000.
Young America’s Foundation’s New Guard reported that Mulvaney’s agent, Crista Spadafore, confirmed the honorarium for a speech would cost $40,000. Only days before the April 1 promotion in which Bud Light sent Mulvaney a can with his picture on it which Mulvaney used to celebrate “100 days of being a woman,” Mulvaney spoke before roughly 450 students at the University of Pittsburgh, for which he was paid $26,250.
“University and College friends! I am booking speaking opportunities for the upcoming 23/24 school year and would love to come visit,” Mulvaney posted as an Instagram story last weekend, adding the ad was for “serious inquiries.”
Mulvaney’s booking page offers him speaking on subjects including “LGBTQIA+ Advocacy,” “Diversity, Equity & Inclusion,” and “Women’s Empowerment.”
“Some of my most vulnerable videos early on when I had a full beard doing laser hair removal are still one of my favorite videos ever made because I took my power back,” Mulvaney told the student crowd on March 24 at the University of Pittsburgh. “This is what makes me most embarrassed about myself and I’m showing you this right now and being vulnerable, and now it’s not as scary to me. It really brought me closer to these human beings from behind the screens.”
“I still haven’t played a female character yet — that’s something I really want to do. I want to figure out how we can infuse this trans joy into shows,’ Mulvaney continued. “’I want to see a trans woman falling in love and see trans people succeeding in scripted content. That’s how we’re gonna make what’s happening now in this country a little bit better.”
In late June, Mulvaney attacked Bud Light, saying, “I was waiting for the brand to reach out to me, but they never did. I’ve been scared to leave my house. For a company to hire a trans person and then not publicly stand by them is worse than not hiring a trans person at all.”
Last October, President Joe Biden invited Mulvaney to the White House.
