Over the past decade, the “Influencer” has become the newest type of celebrity. For years we had Hollywood stars, reality TV stars, singers, and various news media talking heads who would become gain celebrity status in their own right. Now, a YouTuber has the potential to usurp the popularity of even the most established entertainment industry icon. Even YouTube channels can garner more views than traditional television channels.
Blaire White started her YouTube channel in November 2015. She almost immediately shot to E-Celeb status thanks to her personality and unique position as one of the few trans personalities on the video hosting platform. By discussing semi-taboo issues like transitioning and gender dysphoria at the time, Blaire found an audience with others who felt like they did not have a voice or person to turn to who could relate to these issues.
Since she launched her channel with a simple setup and low video resolution, the YouTuber has become a full-fledged media personality. She has appeared on the Joe Rogan Podcast and other major outlets as a social and political commentator.
The social and political landscape of our world was much different in 2015. So how has Blaire White evolved, and has the fame changed her? We spoke with Ms. White today about the topics of YouTube, growing as an entertainer, and the effect all these events have had on her life.
I’d like to personally thank Miss White for coming to the show to talk about the lighter fare. We know that politics can be stressful, and sometimes it’s nice to talk to people like their humans rather than a political or social label.
