Tyler Oakley

Tyler Oakley has attracted fans for his sharp, funny and thoughtful YouTube videos ever since he made his very first post back in 2007. Viewers love the Jackson, Mich.-hailing YouTube personality -- who has become instantly recognizable due to his often brightly colored ‘do -- for his pop culture witticisms and reflections. However, Oakley has since become much more, using his newfound fame for his advocacy work. Oakley uses his public platform to speak out about LGBT rights along with other social issues, including healthcare and education. He even appeared in a video where he discussed the latter with First Lady Michelle Obama. Oakley's work has earned him a pair of Teen Choice Awards for Best Male Web Star and Best Web Collaboration.
