Miles McKenna is an openly transgender American actor, vlogger, and LGBTQIA+ advocate and is among one of the most famous trans content creators on YouTube. He started making confessional-styled videos on YouTube in 2011 and began spreading awareness of social issues.

Miles, who identifies as a transgender male, does commentary videos on gender identity and LGBTQIA+ awareness on YouTube. Having gone through several health-related issues, he has also talked about how being born into a religious family has shaped his life.

Let’s discuss more about Miles’ rise to popularity, family, career, net worth, and love life.

He Was Thrown Out Of His House

Miles was born into a strict religious household on November 2, 1995. As a result, he faced difficulty dealing with his own sexual identity at first.

The YouTube personality was brought up in Los Angeles, California, by a strict family who could not accept his new-discovered non-binary identity. He was booted out of his own house by his father, who Miles does not talk to up to this day. Also, he has a brother named Alex McKenna.

McKenna wrote a coming-out book, Out!: How to Be Your Authentic Self. It talks about how harshly his parents treated him when he first came out as gay in 2015. He authored the book to spread awareness about being okay with one’s gender identity.

When Miles first came out to his parents, they responded by reciting the Bible verses. Those hurtful actions sent him to a very sad place, and he later left his home. Later in 2017, he came out as a trans male. The YouTuber then changed his name to Miles Aaron McKenna.

The young guy also went through a difficult transition period when figuring out his gender. He initially hated being seen as a girl. Moreover, the media person mentions how he used to feel out of place, not being sure of who he was. He often criticizes people who deadname the LGBTQIA community.

Moreover, Miles started a YouTube channel in 2011, which helped how he transitioned later on. He used the platform to make confession videos that he could not share with his family.
