Gigi Gorgeous

Transgender Activist, Actress, Model, & Social Media Influencer

Between YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram, Giselle Loren Lazzarato — known online as Gigi Gorgeous — has a social media following surpassing five million. The Toronto-based icon first came out as transgender in a YouTube video in December 13, after having already achieved a degree of vlogger fame as the openly gay Gregory Gorgeous. Her transition was chronicled online for her fans, and in January, her story made it to the big screen, with the documentary film This is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous. Directed by two-time Oscar-winning filmmaker Barbara Koppl, the biopic premiered at the Sundance Film Festival — but you can now watch it, fittingly, on YouTube.
