Why He's Doing It
“Chosen Family is all about celebrating queer life, amplifying disenfranchised voices within the LGBTQ+ community, and honoring our history while fighting for our future,” Oakley has told PEOPLE exclusively about the project, which launched at the end of May.

What It Means to Tyler
“Creating the series has enriched my little gay soul, and I’m honored to share it with the world,” says Oakley (with Hannah Hart and Kingsley).

It's Not Just a Video Series
“Not only are we making videos that are so important to me, but each week we’re selling limited edition t-shirts that raise money for causes directly relating to that week’s content," says Oakley (with Kingsley). "LGBTQ+ Pride is about resilience, and I’m so excited to show that this year.”
How You Can Get in on the Fun
Oakley has organized a fundraising opportunity with Represent to design limited edition t-shirts to celebrate a different theme each week for Pride Month. A portion of the proceeds will be going to a different LGBTQ+ organization each week.
