Chris Tyson is a popular YouTube personality who has appeared in many videos alongside MrBeast. They recently revealed that they have started hormone replacement therapy (HRT). In a tweet posted last week, Chris, who uses “any pronouns,” shared that they began the treatments two months ago. They explained that they have already noticed changes in their hairline and facial shape. HRT is a form of gender-affirming healthcare that helps gender nonconforming individuals achieve a more traditional masculine or feminine appearance.


Tyson’s announcement has sparked conversations about the importance of access to gender-affirming healthcare. They praised the benefits of informed consent HRT. This informed consent allows individuals to make informed decisions about their own bodies. They called attention to the hurdles that gender nonconforming people often face in accessing life-saving healthcare. “The hurdles [gender nonconforming] people have to jump through to get life-saving gender-affirming healthcare in a 1st world country is wild to me,” Tyson wrote. “Just let people make informed decisions about their own bodies.”

This is not the first time that Chris has come out on social media. In 2020, they publicly shared their identity as bisexual and the challenges they faced in coming out. “Just know if the people around you don’t love and support you we always will,” Tyson wrote at the time. “Someday I’d like to go into detail about more of this but I’m still very private about it due to things that happened when I tried coming out. I just don’t want to be silent about it anymore.”


Chris Tyson’s openness about their personal experiences has been praised by fans and followers, who have expressed gratitude for their advocacy and representation. Chris has also shared transformation photos on Twitter. In these photos, they have showcased the changes they have experienced since beginning HRT. Tyson expressed excitement about the conversations their announcement has sparked and their hope for more open dialogue about gender identity and access to gender-affirming healthcare in the future. “It makes everything so worth it,” the MrBeast crew member tweeted. “I’m so excited to have more conversations like this in the future with you all.”

Chris Tyson’s announcement is a reminder of the importance of creating a world where people can feel safe and supported in expressing their identities and accessing the healthcare they need. As Tyson’s experience shows, representation and advocacy can help create positive change and foster greater understanding and acceptance of gender diversity.
