The Wealth of Milo Stewart
How rich is Milo Stewart? As of early-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is just $3,000, earned through a success on YouTube. His online fame has gained him several other opportunities, and he’s also been featured in other YouTube channels. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life, Education, and Online Beginnings
Milo was born as a woman and never really thought about questions regarding gender as well as sexuality until s/he was in the 8th grade. It was during this period that s/he began to question his sexuality though s/he has never referred to the incident that made him do so. S/he later came to the conclusion that s/he is of a non-binary gender though his/her look and actions have made people label him/her as a transgender.
After matriculating from high school, s/he then enrolled at Columbia College in Chicago where s/he studies for a major in television. S/he also started working while in college, but despite that, it did not stop his/her interest from starting a YouTube channel. According to him/her, s/he began gaining an interest towards making content on YouTube as s/he was inspired by similar transgender YouTube channels such as those of Laci Green. S/he’d already had prior content creation experience, as s/he contributed to a channel in high school called Gay-Straight Alliance.
In 2013, Stewart started his/her own YouTube channel. The website is a video sharing website that since its creation in 2005, has become one of the most popular websites on the internet. It is the main source for video content such as music videos, short films, video clips, documentaries, movie trailers, live streams, and video blogs. It allows users to upload their own content while others can view, rate, comment, and subscribe to videos or channels they like. The fame of YouTube has even led to companies and corporations investing in the website with major media networks having their own dedicated channels.
After creating his/her channel, s/he began posting various self-advice videos but what really brought him/her notoriety were controversial videos in which s/he begins to rant and stereotype people into various labels. Despite this, his/her channel has gained over 30,000 subscribers and over a million views. While his/her early videos consisted of controversial statements, s/he has recently focused more on posting videos related to living a life as a transgender individual. S/he also started posting about recent events in his/her life similar to vlogs which are popular on YouTube.
Controversies and Second Channel
In 2014, Milo created a second channel called Birchie Rants in which s/he focuses more on his/her rants and problems. The channel was later discontinued though it gained over 2,000 subscribers. One of the reasons for his/her fame and also the primary reason for the criticisms surrounding him/her is due to his/her statements. S/he mentioned that all men are misogynistic and labelled all white people as racist. S/he also made statements saying that people in the majority are transphobic. These videos are often outbursts of anger which are often unfiltered and unscripted.
While s/he continues to be labelled as a transgender, s/he believes that s/he is a non-binary person though has mentioned that s/he is still very confused when it comes to his/her gender. He accepts references to him/herself as she, they, or them. There is also some confusion about his/her name as s/he has often been confused with another controversial personality named Milo Yiannopoulos who is a political commentator. This led him/her to make a statement that s/he has also adopted the name of Quinby Stewart as opposed to Milo though did not really change his/her YouTube channel name.

Personal Life and Social Media
For his/her personal life, not much is known in terms of any romantic relationships. S/he has mentioned before that s/he has had sexual partners and romances though has not given details about them. S/he previously believed that having sex was just an adult notion and was not really required. S/he mentioned that s/he found joy in other things and wanted to become a person who would not really rely on sex. S/he later retracted those statements and mentioned that s/he has had sexual experiences. S/he did not want to be like other people who approached near 100 years old but never really had sex.
S/he has also stated his/her regret regarding his/her earlier videos in which s/he hardly did any thinking before posting the videos online. Since then, s/he has made sure that his/her videos are kept civil and no longer rants like they used to be. Similar to numerous YouTube personalities, s/he is highly active online through social media websites including accounts on Twitter and Facebook. S/he mainly uses his/her Twitter account to promote his/her videos while also posting day to day content. His/her Facebook content also does promotions on his/her YouTube videos though it barely has any followers compared to his/her Twitter account.
