Oakley, Tyler, 1989- author.
Social rights advocate and prominent LGBTQ+ voice on YouTube, Tyler Oakley brings you his first collection of personal essays. For someone who made a career out of over-sharing on the Internet, Tyler has a shocking number of personal mishaps and shenanigans to reveal in his first book: experiencing a legitimate rage blackout in a Cheesecake Factory; negotiating a tense stand-off with a White House official; crashing a car in front of his entire high school, in an Arby's uniform; projectile vomiting while bartering with a grandmother; and so much more. Tyler delivers his best untold moments with his trademark flair.
