V Squared

Nominated in LGBTQ+

About V Squared

Vinny Vaillancourt had a surprising 2017, receiving his YouTube plaque for surpassing 100K subscribers early in the year, but then going through a divorce from his husband (and collaborator) Luke. His tears may have been flowing, but after a few months of being single at 28 he admitted, “I think it’s changed me for the better.” Vinny’s 110K+ subscribers are happy to hear it, and even happier that they continue to get their “weekly dose of V2!” With humorously honest vlogs, Q&A videos, and guest appearances by fellow YouTubers like Arielle Scarcella, Vinny is helping himself get back on track, even opening up about his experiences going to therapy. His fans across social media know that 2018 is bound to hold big things for the lovably laugh-prone LGBTQ+ YouTuber.
