Tyler Oakley is not one to take breaks. It seems this veteran YouTube creator simply never stops and seems to rack up achievements at a frankly alarming rate. Tyler's latest milestone involves his former college, Michigan State.
Tyler returned to his alma mater this month, ten years after he graduated, in order to be the university's youngest and first openly gay homecoming grand marshal. For those outside the US, a homecoming grand marshal is a kind of guest of honour, who is linked to the school. It is a recognition and celebration of everything Tyler has achieved.
