Viral stardom

George and Michaela Okland co-hosted “She Rates Dogs,” a podcast that debuted in 2020 with a focus on relationships and pop culture. George was also known for funny takes on Twitter that often went viral, including a recent tweet, “I’ve been in LA for a year and haven’t seen a single celebrity. My mom comes for a weekend and meets Snoop Dogg” – alongside a photo of his mother and a Snoop Dogg impersonator.  He frequently tweeted about his experiences as an out gay man.

Notable quote

“My hopes for my twitter account and SheRatesDogs the Podcast is to share my stories and make LGBTQ+ people all across the world feel like they’re not alone. The most rewarding moments are when members of the LGBTQ+ community reach out to me and tell me what a difference I’ve made in their lives.” —from a 2020 interview for Shoutout Arizona
