About Miles McKenna

The YouTube star Miles McKenna came out early 2017 as transgender. Nearly 2M people have watched his “SO I’M TRANS*” coming out video—and that’s not the only big announcement Miles made this year. He also launched his web series Hella Gay on Fullscreen and co-headlined the cross-country “Love Is Love” tour with fellow YouTube stars Shannon Beveridge and Rebecca Black, bringing a message of acceptance to fans. Plus, he let Snapchat followers in on his plans for top surgery, reposting the news on Instagram to nearly 130K likes. It’s been a transformative year for Miles, and his 1M+ YouTube subscribers can’t wait to see what comes next.
