When it comes to LGBTQ+ influencers who have a variety of claims to fame, not many can match the versatile repertoire of Dylan Geick. This chiseled YouTube sensation first garnered success when he joined the growing list of gay athletes helping to change the world. Geick came out as gay publicly in 2017 while he was a wrestler for Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois. He started to tell his inspirational story of being an out athlete on social media, and really began to attract a large audience when he began dating fellow internet star Jackson Krecioch.

In the years since his initial coming out, Geick has changed his sexual label to queer rather than gay. He's also served a short stint in the U.S. military and he's very passionate about literature, poetry, and writing. Geick is someone who shares a lot of his life with his fans, and we collected several Instagram posts that best tell his story up to this point!

Geick recently went on a "Forrest Gump"-style trek across the United States and decided to recap this journey with fans on Instagram. Not only does he look excellent in longer hair and a beard, his caption about how the journey moved him is both intellectually and emotionally fascinating. Geick comes across as someone trying to find his purpose, and his openness with fans and the world around him is refreshing compared to a lot of other influencers his age. Geick also encouraged his fans to donate to several charities in honor of his walk across the country.

No matter how interesting and varied Geick's career choices and hobbies are, his main feature for his thirsty audience is his wrestling physique. Not many hunks in sports have the biceps and abs of Geick, and he pokes fun at how he hasn't posted many thirst traps recently in the caption.

It's important for big voices across the internet to shed gender labels and not be bashful when it comes to expressing themselves. Geick gives a long explanation here about the ignorance of those who think men should be pushed into boxes. Being an athlete, putting on a dress, and playing the piano aren't mutually exclusive activities, and Geick is proud to demonstrate his ability to do all of them.

Geick decided to return to his high school in 2019 and reunite with some old wrestling teammates for a photo. While all three men look great, Geick's work in the weight room really shines through when standing next to his peers. No wonder he's one of the internet's biggest heartthrobs!

Geick goes with a gothic, black-and-white look here with a cigarette in the bathtub. He gives the fans a taste of his poetry commenting on the nature of his soul and the activities that both feed and crush his personal ambitions. The post shows how thoughtful Geick is in many of his endeavors in life.
