This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous

Canadian Lazzarato (b. 1992) didn’t have the most typical youth. As a pre-teen Lazzarato was a skilled diver. At the age of fourteen, he started posting make-up tutorials on YouTube with the alias of Greg GorgeousWhen Gorgeous came out as gay, the number of his followers increased. Many got strength from his example.

When his mother died, Lazzarato understood that life is short and he wanted to continue it as a woman. Greg became Giselle Lazzarato, Gigi Gorgeous. Gigi’s YouTube followers witnessed every step of the sex reassignment process.

This intimate documentary was directed by the Oscar-winning Barbara Kopple (American Dream, Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing). Since the filming, Lazzarato’s life has yet again taken a new turn and she has come out as a lesbian. Last summer Time Magazine listed her as one of the 25 most influential people on the Internet.
