Who is Who is Dylan Mulvaney?
American transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney has been recognized as the Woman of the Year by Attitude Magazine, a prominent British publication, with the support of Virgin Atlantic. Born on December 29, 1996, Mulvaney is a well-known TikTok personality who actively promotes trans positivity.
Initially starting her career in theatre as a cast member of the highly successful musical “The Book of Mormon,” Mulvaney turned to TikTok in 2020 due to the limitations imposed by the pandemic, using the platform to share her experiences and knowledge as a queer individual. Having amassed a significant following, Mulvaney publicly came out as a trans woman in March 2022.
She revealed to her fans that she had previously identified as nonbinary during the pandemic, but ultimately realized her true identity as a girl, honoring the inner child within her that had known this truth for many years.
Subsequently, Mulvaney embarked on her renowned TikTok series titled “Days of Girlhood,” documenting her journey towards embracing femininity. Since then, this social media personality has consistently made headlines for various reasons.
What happened to Dylan Mulvaney?
The creator was recently presented with the Attitude Awards 23’s “Woman of the Year” honor in London.
In her acceptance speech for the award, she said, “I am so honoured to be here with you all tonight. You know some see me as the woman of the year, some see me as a woman of a year as I only publicly came out online 560 days ago. ”
“And some don’t see me as a woman at all, which is why I’m receiving this honour. I have realised no matter how hard I try, or what I wear, or what I say or what surgeries I get I will never reach an acceptable version of womanhood by those HATEFUL people’s standards.”
“But as long as I have a rare community that sees me for my truth I am gonna be okay!”
Nonetheless, the credibility of the award has been compromised by the abundance of hate speech that has resulted from this development. The majority of people were quick to voice their opinions.

a man being awarded “woman of the year” is indicative of a deeply misogynistic society. because no one is better at being women than men are, right? https://t.co/PSBRlpPXXQ
