We love YouTube sensation Tyler Oakley here at MP! and now the LGBT advocate has just won his first award. Ooh, fancy. Tyler was honoured at the Streamys last night where he not only picked up the Audience Choice Entertainer of the Year Award, but was also chosen as one of the night’s ‘ICONS’ for his online activism and fundraising to prevent LGBT teen suicide.
Speaking about his win, an emotional Tyler said;
“Thank you for letting me be part of this little fun group. When I first got on YouTube, it was a way for me to keep in touch with friends. To my mom: you’re on the East Coast. Go to bed. I know you’re watching.”
Aww. What a sweetheart. Well done, Tyler!
