Who is Kalvin Garrah?
Kalvin Garrah was born under the zodiac sign of Cancer on 6 July 2000, in Maryland USA. He holds American nationality, and his ethnicity is mixed. Kalvin is a YouTuber and a social media star, perhaps best known for his eponymous YouTube channel which he launched on 1 October 2011. It’s today subscribed to by over 300,000 people, and numbers more than 28 million views of all his videos combined; these videos mostly feature his everyday life as a transgender person, but also some fun content such as pranks, reactions and music covers.
Early life and education
Kalvin was raised with his younger sister Lily in Maryland by his parents; his father was a construction worker and his mother a nurse.
At an early age, back in elementary school, he felt like a boy and was attracted to girls, and as he said in one of his videos, he was confused, since ‘he’ was born as female.
During his high school days, he started to cut his hair short and dress up as a boy, so he used to identify as a non-binary.
Kalvin had Female to Male (FtM) top surgery in 2018, and in 2020 he had bottom surgery; he has shared his experience with his viewers on his YouTube channel, and his family was very supportive of his transition.
Kalvin attended a local high school, but upon matriculating in 2018, he didn’t enroll at a college.
Most popular YouTube videos
The first video he uploaded onto his YouTube channel was “GENDER NEUTRAL LOOKBOOK!” on 8 February 2016, which has attracted over 200,000 views.
As of September 2021, his most viewed video is “THE TIKTOK PREDATOR (Exposing Mama Stef)” with over 1.2 million views since it was uploaded in 2019.
The second most viewed video on his channel is “I qUit hORMOnEs aNd So Can You (Trans Guy Reacts)” which has been watched over a million times since 2 February 2019, and in which he reacts to a video of another transgender person, and comments on his experience with stopping hormone therapy.
In his videos, Kalvin is always honest with his opinions about certain people or themes, and perhaps that is the reason why he is so popular in the transgender community.
Besides his self-named channel, he launched his second channel – “KalvinGames” – on 17 December 2015, on which he has over 13,000 subscribers; videos on this channel mostly feature him playing games such as “The Long Dark” and “Until Dawn”.
Kalvin also launched his third YouTube channel – “KALVIN VLOGS” – on 6 June 2018, intended for vlogging, but he’s posted only one video onto this channel.
Although Kalvin has numerous fans, he has some haters too, who had even started a petition to ban him from posting videos onto his channel, because they thought that these are full of hate directed at gender non-conforming people. The petition to remove his channel from YouTube was started under the pseudonym Elias Briggs, and became one of the top signed petitions on Change.org with 63,323 signatures, however, a fun fact is that even Kalvin signed this petition.
After starting this petition, one of Kalvin’s fans named Mae Johnson started a new petition on Change.org to keep Kalvin Garrah’s channel on YouTube, which collected 1,185 signatures.
None of this harmed Kalvin’s popularity – his fans supported him, and many of them are thankful to him because his videos helped them in their transitions, and as they’ve said, he’s their role model.
Kalvin’s followed by more than 160,000 people on his Instagram account, and has uploaded over 170 pictures, most of which have been taken during his everyday life.
He had a Twitter account, but was banned from this social media because he uploaded some content, that violates the terms of usage of the platform.
Kalvin is also active on his TikTok account, on which he’s amassed over 200,000 followers, and more than five million likes of all his videos combined.
Love life and relationship
Back in high school, Kalvin had his first relationship with a girl whose name is unknown; however, it’s widely known about his relationship with a girl named Kenna Noel, who is a social media star, thanks to her account on TikTok; they were dating from 2017 to 2018.
After breaking up with Kenna, he dated a girl named Hannah for a short time.
In 2019, he introduced his new girlfriend Sienna on his YouTube channel video entitled “A Day with My Girlfriend”.
As of September 2021, it seems that Kalvin is still in a relationship with Sienna, and they are very open about it, according to the posts on their social media accounts.

He is a big fan of tattoos, and has a few on his body; each tattoo means something special to him – that of a gorilla is his favorite because it represents strength, as he said in one of his videos.
