Dylan Mulvaney, the transgender influencer who cost Bud Light hundreds of millions of dollars last year after teaming up with the brand for a partnership, is celebrating after scoring a new female gender marker on a passport.
Mulvaney’s New Passport
“Starting 2024 with a new passport and an essay I wrote for @portermagazine on my pledge to stop people pleasing,” Mulvaney wrote on social media alongside a photo of the document. “Here’s to ease through TSA and the year ahead.”
Mulvaney included a link to a Porter essay in which the 26 year-old transgender influencer admitted that anxiety surrounding people-pleasing “is most noticeable at the airport.”
“I show up in a sweats set, but add femme accessories and earrings in the hope of not being misgendered,” Mulvaney wrote. “The TSA step-through scan is my worst enemy, and often I have to whisper into the officer’s ear, ‘Um, I’m trans.’ Has this TSA officer seen my videos? Do they believe trans people exist? Once I make it through security, I pull my face mask up and race through the terminal.”

Mulvaney Scared Of Airport Bathrooms
“Airport bathrooms scare me more than anywhere else. I pray my mask hides the whiskers on my face that I still have left from hours of electrolysis and laser, though I know cis women have facial hair, too. Once I make it to the gate, I try to sit facing a wall so that no one can catch my eye,” the transgender influencer added. “I’m too nervous of the potential for hateful comments, which has happened plenty of times prior. I realize this limits me from the flipside – meeting lovely people who support me – but I don’t know if it’s worth taking the chance.”
Mulvaney went on to say that 2023 ended “on an exciting note” with the passport female gender marker update.
“I just got my gender marker and photo changed on my passport, so now the airport should be a little less daunting in 2024,” wrote Mulvaney. “I hope everything will be less daunting.”
“I hope that love pours over the hate and, most importantly, that the majority of the love comes from within,” Mulvaney concluded. “Because, really, the only person I need to please is myself.”

Bud Light Boycott
This comes after Daily Mail reported that Bud Light’s parent company Anheuser-Busch announced that revenue in the U.S. fell by 13.5 percent between July and September in the wake of the Mulvaney partnership that came out back in April. On top of that, sales to U.S. retailers were also down 17 percent during that time period, with Anheuser-Busch admitting that this was largely due to a drop in demand for Bud Light.
As for Bud Light specifically, its sales were down 29 percent in the four weeks that ended on October 21 compared to the same period one year ago. This is in the wake of conservatives launching a highly affective boycott of Bud Light after the company teamed up with Mulvaney for the April partnership.
