Chris Tyson, a longstanding friend and colleague of MrBeast, has been the subject of much recent speculation due to gender identification questions. Recent online discussions have focused on the possibility that Chris identifies as transgender.
Chris’s recent revelation that he is taking Hormone Replacement Therapy brought some much-needed clarity to the topic, which is often fraught with sensitivity and privacy concerns (HRT). Fans are excited and curious about Chris’s journey and what this means for the future after hearing the news. Is MrBeast’s alleged transgender friend Chris Tyson a real person?
Is Chris Transgender?
Chris has not made any public declarations about his gender identification, but his Twitter profile indicates that he does not mind which pronouns are used to refer to him. Chris has grown out his hair and started painting his nails, two outward signs that he is experimenting with his image.
On top of that, in a recent MrBeast live stream on YouTube, he wore a variety of items that some viewers may have seen as being more feminine.

Is Katie Tyson still Married to Chris?
Tyson announced their marriage to fellow influencer Katie Tyson in May of 2018. Chris and Katie Tyson had their first child, Tucker, two years later. Chris Tyson frequently posts images of the three of them and has even started posting videos of their time together.
Chris Tyson claimed on Twitter that he and Katie had been separated since early 2022, only a few weeks before they went public with their gender transition.
They tweeted, “Me and Katie have been apart for a little over a year now.” We’re getting close to the finish line, but it’ll be a little while longer yet.
A lot of people don’t get us since we share so much, but this is the one and only occasion I’m willing to talk about how much we value privacy in our personal lives.
After receiving negative feedback over her decision to wear nail paint around Tucker in January 2023, Tyson decided to take a hiatus from social media.
“I can take all the jokes and hate comments and stuff, no problem, But people sending me messages telling me I’m the reason my kid is going to kill himself one day is way too f**king much,” they tweeted, slamming hurtful trolls.
How long have Chris been out as bis*xual?
Chris Tyson, who had kept their gender identity a secret for almost two and a half years, revealed they were bis*xual in the months leading up to the 2020 US presidential election in November.
They had this to say at the time: “All of us youngsters who were silenced and shamed for being different, or who were told that our voices didn’t matter, are finally standing up and letting our voices be heard.
When I came out as bis*xual to my small circle of friends and family when I was 16 years old, I was met with a great deal of hostility. Never doubt that we will always love and support you, even if no one else does.
They posted a reminder of their s*xuality online in April 2023, writing, “unless I missed something new in my own life, I’m 99.9% sure I still enjoy all genders lol.” in response to internet criticism.
They added: “I’ll see you next time I come out as bi for the 483905 time”.
I was reading my instagram comments, and unless I missed something new in my own life, I’m 99.9% sure I still like both genders lol
I’ll see you next time I come out as bi for the 483905 time 👍🏻

Midway through March 2023, Tyson tweeted their support for gender-neutral restrooms and their 18-month hair growth. They then showed a before-and-after photo of themselves taken at different times of the pandemic.

As Republicans threatened to enact legislation against gender-affirming healthcare, they ultimately took to Twitter to discuss their own experience with HRT after retweeting multiple comments in support of trans rights and arguments against anti-trans dog whistles.
“Informed consent HRT saved my and many others’ lives. The hurdles gnc [gender non-conforming] people have to jump through to get life-saving gender-affirming healthcare in a first-world country is wild to me. Just let people make informed decisions about their own bodies,” Tyson tweeted.
As they said in a subsequent tweet, they have “always been quiet when it comes to this,” thus coming public with it was a big step for them.
After the original tweet, Tyson has responded to the callous claims that Tucker has lost a “father figure” by saying that such remarks are “more dog-whistling that somehow trans and gnc persons aren’t safe around kids” and that Tucker is “so loved and happy.”
They added: “I know I’m going to be a great parent, and so is every person who puts the love of their child before everything. I made this decision because I wanted to show up as my best and happiest self for him.
“In a way, this way FOR Tucker”.
This is just more dog whistling that somehow trans and gnc folks aren’t safe around kids. Tucker begs for me to come back when I leave for like 2 days to film. He is so loved and happy. Kids arent born with hate, it’s taught by people like you. And my child will only know love 💜 https://t.co/JGA5jUAynV
