The actress and LGBTQ+ activist gained viral fame with her Days of Girlhood TikTok series, which documented her gender transition and drew more than 1 billion views. “Whether somebody’s trans or not, I just hope they can watch my videos and feel inspired to unlock a new part of them- selves,” she says. Mulvaney, who was named a 2023 Forbes Top Creator and raked in an estimated $2 million in earnings last year, found herself at the center of an unexpected political crossfire after Bud Light paid her to post a video featuring a custom beer with her face on the can, sparking a widespread boycott of the brand.
