Things To Know About Gigi Gorgeous and Her Changing Sexuality

As of then, Gregory still went by ‘he’ instead of the current ‘she’. As of 2008 when she launched her YouTube channel, she also described herself as a homosexual man.
When Gorgeous finished high school in 2010, she enrolled at George Brown College in Toronto to study fashion. However, she left the college midway in other to concentrate on her promising YouTube career. She has since been residing in Los Angeles, California, making most of her fortune from being a YouTube star.
Gigi Emerged a Transgender Following Her Mom’s Death in 2013
As the year went by, Gigi did not seem to have found what suits her sexually. That explains why she began to make another sexuality shift. This time, one that would affect her gender and entire personality. Her internet fans were however, oblivious of what she was going through until in February 2013 when she, unfortunately, lost her mom to leukaemia. Ironically, the death of her mother gave her the courage and boldness to come out to the world as a transgender woman later in the year, precisely in December 2013.
Following her outing, Gigi went ahead to do the necessary corrective surgeries to that effect. Among them, she underwent electrolysis, tracheal shave, hormone replacement therapy, facial feminization surgery, rhinoplasty, and breast augmentation. In 2014, she completed the process by changing her name to Gigi Loren Lazzarato.
Gigi’s bold act of coming out as a transgender person made a lot of rounds on the news. She however, never succumbed to the critics of friends and family who refused to accept her new status. Meanwhile, her bold act favoured her internet business as more people subscribed to her YouTube channel while many more followed her on other social media platforms. She precisely garnered over 1 million YouTube subscribers following her new gender declaration. Gigi has since grown in popularity to become one of the most followed transgender on social media.
Apart from her career as a vlogger, Gigi Gorgeous is the creator of the web series, The Avenue. She also featured in the series alongside several other budding artists in Canada. She thereafter, became a woman of gossip and made appearances for E! Celebrity Style Story while also receiving a LogoTV award for advocating for LGBT youths. Gorgeous also featured in a documentary about Caitlyn Jenner‘s transformation in May 2015.

Describing the video as very personal, she said she never knew in her life that she would make such a vlog, adding that what she was about to say in it gave her goosebumps.
Continuing, Gigi Gorgeous told fans that she has slowly been letting fans into her life through vlogging, but has been holding back detailed information about her sexuality from them. She further explained that 2016 was69 one of the most eventful and fun years of her entire life. This was because she went through lots of self examination, reflection, and personality changes.
