About Gigi Gorgeous

Trans model, television personality, and influencer Gigi Gorgeous inspires fans to live their authentic lives and “Stay gorgeous.” Offering beauty, fashion, and glam-living videos to nearly 2.5M subscribers on her self-titled YouTube channel, the LogoTV trailblazer additionally uses her channel as a platform to discuss transgender issues, advocating for the LGBTQ+ community, #LoveTrumpsHate, and anti-bullying campaigns. Chatting about her experiences on YouTube—from a Dubai transgender-provoked detainment and anxiety from an STD scare to monthly fashion favorites and Jenner talk—Gigi recently came out as a lesbian on her channel, discussing sexuality labels, life changes, and her newfound relationship, inspiring fans to “take a stand for who you are.”
