The Net Worth of Milo Stewart
How rich is Milo Stewart? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is only over $3,000, earned through a career on YouTube. His online fame has led him to numerous opportunities, including work with other YouTube personalities. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will increase significantly.
Early Life, Education, and YouTube Beginnings
Milo was born as a female, but when he was in 8th grade he started getting confused about his gender identity, and many questions sprang up about his sexuality. During this time, he began to question himself though he never referred to a specific incident that really caused his confusion. He eventually came to the conclusion that he was not of an ordinary gender, initially labeling himself as non-binary, before gaining the label of transgender through observations of others.
After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at the Chicago-based Columbia College, and took a major in television. During his time there, he also started working, and became interested in creating his own YouTube channel, inspired by people who had a similar experience and who’ve now become popular YouTube personalities, including Laci Green. He also had experience in creating videos thanks to being part of a group called the Gay-Straight Alliance back when he was in high school.
YouTube is a video sharing website owned by Google and was created in 2005 by three former Paypal employees. Since its inception, it has become one of the most popular websites in the internet with Alexa Internet rating it as the second most popular website in the world. It has become the main source for video related media such as movie trailers, live streams, music videos, video blogs, documentaries, and the like. Users can view videos and subscribe to channels they like. They are also given the capability of rating, commenting, and other means of interaction through the website. The popularity of the website has led to numerous individuals and corporations investing on the platform, with some finding success.
Stewart created his channel in 2013, and began by posting self-advice videos which didn’t really gain much attention at the start. The videos that initially brought him to fame were his rant videos, which earned him notoriety due to him stereotyping people out of hate. Despite these types of videos, he’s gained over 30,000 subscribers to his channels, and recent videos of his have moved away from his more hateful content. In recent months, he’s been more focused on providing information about his life as a transgender, and posted a lot of vlog content which is popular on the website.
Second Channel and Criticisms
A year after the creation of his first channel, he created his second channel called Birchie Rants, which was meant as an avenue for him to vent problems he was experiencing, and carried videos which became the reason for many of his critics. He’s accused all men of being misogynistic, and labelled all white people as racist. He also accused people of being transphobic – the lack of filters of his videos led to more uproar against him.
He eventually discontinued the channel, though it still remains on the website, but he hasn’t put any new content on it. He mentions that he is still very confused when it comes to his gender, and accepts various references to himself. He has also been confused with another controversial personality, named Milo Yiannopoulos who is a political commentator. This led him to adopt another name – Quinby Stewart – but he didn’t really change his YouTube channel’s name as it would cause a lot of confusion. He continues to believe that he is a non-binary person, and not just a transgender despite all the labels.

Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, not much is known in terms of Stewart’s romantic relationships. He’s mentioned that he’s had romances and sexual partners, but never really given details about their identity. He previously believed that sex was not necessary for his life, and that it was an optional adult thing. He later retracted those statements, and mentioned that he’s had sexual experiences despite previously wanting to become a person who didn’t need to have sex. One of the reasons he retracted his statement was due to discovering people who spent their whole life not having sex, and realized that he didn’t want to be like them.
He has also expressed multiple times that he’s regretted posting videos which he didn’t really think through when he was making them. He’s since kept most of his videos civil, and no longer makes statements that could attract a lot of heat towards him. Similar to other YouTube personalities, he is highly active online through accounts on social media websites. He has an account on Twitter which he mainly uses to promote his YouTube channel, while posting his day to day endeavors. His Facebook account also does promotions, though it isn’t as noted or as followed as his Twitter account.
