Now that transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney has created an utter disaster for Bud Light, its brewers, and its distributors, Mulvaney has moved to a new business role of giving speeches at colleges and universities across the nation for $40,000 per speech.
Mulvaney announced the speaking tour, but conveniently left out the sky-high price, on an Instagram story, saying, “University and College friends! I am booking speaking opportunities for the upcoming 23/24 school year and would love to come visit.”
Well, Young Americans for Freedom contacted Mulvaney’s agent and found out what the per-speech fee for Mulvaney’s speaking tour is. Reporting on that, YAF’s “The New Guard” said, “[Mulvaney’s] agent, Crista Spadafore, confirmed to the New Guard that Mulvaney’s honorarium is $40,000 – nearly twice as much as it was just a few months ago when he delivered a one-off speech at the University of Pittsburgh for $26,250.”
The booking page notes that Mulvaney can be booked to speak about topics such as “LGBTQIA+ Advocacy,” “Diversity, Equity & Inclusion,” and “Women’s Empowerment,” among other, similar topics during this speaking tour.
It also gives Mulvaney’s biography, saying, “Dylan Mulvaney (she/they) is a trans actress and content creator living in Los Angeles, CA. She was touring with Broadway’s Book of Mormon and when the pandemic hit, she turned to TikTok. Dylan now has 6 million followers on TikTok, where she highlights her transgender journey in a series titled “Days of Girlhood” which has received over 750 million views in less than 100 days. TikTok has crowned her their “trailblazer” for the month of June, and she made Good Morning America’s “Who is Making LGBTQ+ History Right Now?” list. She is currently developing a slate of projects tied to her journey. Dylan holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music.”
During a spring speech at the University of Pittsburgh, Mulvaney said, “Some of my most vulnerable videos early on when I had a full beard doing laser hair removal are still one of my favorite videos ever made because I took my power back. This is what makes me most embarrassed about myself and I’m showing you this right now and being vulnerable, and now it’s not as scary to me. It really brought me closer to these human beings from behind the screens.”
Mulvaney also said, during the University of Pittsburgh speech, “I think what’s interesting about transness is there’s not one way to do it. And I think we cannot compare ourselves to others, there’s no rulebook, there’s no set thing that has to happen, and my name was something that I didn’t have dysphoria over. I think we can let go of this idea that you have to change your name, but I celebrate the people that do.”
So, that’s the sort of thing that those who shell out $40,000 for a Mulvaney speech at their college or university will get to hear about for all their tens of thousands of dollars. Or they’ll hear a rant about how horrible Bud Light is, as Mulvaney recently said of it, “I was waiting for the brand to reach out to me, but they never did. I’ve been scared to leave my house. For a company to hire a trans person and then not publicly stand by them is worse than not hiring a trans person at all.”
