Transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney is requesting about $40,000 per speaking engagement while discussing “female empowerment” issues. The former Bud Light marketing partner announced the new arrangement on social media last weekend.
Mulvaney made the statement on social media, requesting opportunities to speak on college campuses. “I am booking speaking opportunities for the upcoming 23/24 school year and would love to come visit,” Mulvaney wrote.
Mulvaney will reportedly be charging $40,000 per appearance. The influencer spoke at the University of Pittsburgh at a cost of $26,250. The March engagement was about two weeks prior to Bud Light’s announcement of a partnership with Mulvaney.
Among the topic that Mulvaney can speak on includes “women’s empowerment.”
A site to book the activist said that Mulvaney gained notoriety during the pandemic, having “turned to TikTok and began sharing her transgender journey with her millions of followers.”
Mulvaney is described in the biography as “she/they.”
Furthermore, the booking company said that “TikTok crowned her their “trailblazer” for the month of June, and she made Good Morning America’s “Who is Making LGBTQ+ History Right Now?” list.”

The activist gained considerable attention after the April partnership with Bud Light was announced. After the marketing deal fell apart, Mulvaney criticized the beer brand’s parent company, Anheuser-Busch.
“For a company to hire a trans person and then not publicly stand by them is worse in my opinion than not hiring a trans person at all because it gives customers permission to be as transphobic and hateful as they want,” Mulvaney said.
The influencer cited “bullying and transphobia” following the announcement and had anticipated that Anheuser-Busch would reach out “but they never did.”
The failed marketing bid led to a significant decline in the sales of Bud Light, which recently lost its position as the most-sold beer brand in the United States. Despite efforts by the company, including new marketing and rebates, it has not been able to recover its market share.
