 The transgender activist and influencer at the center of the Bud Light marking disaster has been named "Woman of the Year" by Attitude Magazine, a gay UK publication supported by Virgin Atlantic airlines.

The magazine announced the award via its social media account on Thursday: 

Mulvaney accepted the award for "woman of the year" at the 2023 Virgin Atlantic Attitude Awards in London, England. In the activist's acceptance speech, Mulvaney rhetorically attacked people who denied the influencer's identity as a woman.

“No matter how hard I try, or what I wear, or what I say, or what surgeries I get, I will never reach an acceptable version of womanhood by those hateful people’s standards,” said the activist. “But as long as the queer community sees me for my truth, I’m going to be OK.”

A Bud Light marketing campaign partnership with Mulvaney in April inspired a backlash that led to a massive drop in sales for the beer brand and its parent company, Anheuser-Busch. Mulvaney later scolded the company for not supporting the influencer enough from critics. 

An executive from Bud Light said that they believe the brand will recover from the debacle but others aren't as certain. A group of distributors said in July that they had given up hope for retail sales to return to their previous highs. 

A poll from April found that far more Americans supported the boycott against Bud Light than those who supported the brand.

In August, Mulvaney accepted an award for "Breakout Creator" at the 13th Annual Streamy Awards for online video content creators.

The influencer concluded the acceptance speech by referring to the Bud Light controversy, saying: "I’m gonna go have a beer, and I love ya!"
