September 8, 2014

Tyler Oakley took home two of the biggest awards at the Streamy Awards Sunday night, where digital-content creators like him showed they are not just interested in boosting their web celebrity but also want to make a difference in people’s lives.

“As time has gone on as a YouTuber I’ve gotten to use my platform hopefully to tell my people about The Trevor Project and what they do. I hope that if there’s one thing you take home from me tonight, it’s that you’re not alone if you’re feeling like you’re going through it, there are tons of people who care,” Oakley said, after receiving the first-ever Icon award for activism. The Trevor Project, which Oakley says he interned with a couple of years ago, provides crisis intervention to LGBTQ youth.

Oakley (pictured top) also took home the audience choice award for entertainer of the year. Fans also voted Spanish-language comedy Enchufe TV the show of the year.

Beauty vlogger Michelle Phan said she was glad she wore waterproof mascara as she accepted the Icon award for inspiration. Phan dedicated the award to her fans and fellow YouTubers. “You know how hard it its to create this platform, and to create this vision and bring it to life,” she said.

A self-made entrepreneur, Phan works wonders with makeup but also promotes self-confidence and hard work.
