He also completed two legs of his national Slumber Party Tour with plans to travel to more cities here in the U.S. and internationally. Tyler has met both the President of the United States and the First Lady, raised over $500,000 for The Trevor Project last year, won two Teen Choice Awards and two Streamy Awards.

He has also been a regular guest host on CBS’ daytime talk show, 'The Talk,' and was named one of Time Magazine’s 30 Most Influential People on the Internet. Most recently, Tyler's book 'Binge' was listed as #2 on the New York Times Best Seller List and his feature film documentary 'Snervous' climbed to the #1 documentary spot on iTunes.
