Here is everything you need to know about her.
Gigi Gorgeous Bio and Age
Gigi Gorgeous was born on April 20, 1992, as a boy in Montreal (Quebec, Canada) as Gregory Allan Lazzarato. Gigi Gorgeous is of Italian, Lebanese and French descent and grew up as the second child of a Catholic family alongside two brothers, Cory Lazzarato and Adam Lazzarato. Even as a young boy, Lazzarato was eager to become an athlete, which led her to learn to dive, which she mastered between the ages of 9 and 15, before giving it up.
Later she went on to study fashion, but she soon dropped out to make time for her YouTube blogging, which she started in 2008. When she started the channel, she offered tutorials for people who wanted to learn make-up, as she was also involved with make-up.
As for the transition to Gigi Gorgeous, Gregory Allan Lazzarato, with the support of his family, initially came out as gay. However, he was soon to come out to tell his family that he was no longer gay, but a woman. As his father betrayed, it wasn’t easy to let Greg go, but his happiness was the only thing that counted. That led to the birth of Giselle Loren Lazzarato in 2013.
Professional Life and Documentary
After coming out as Giselle Loren Lazzarato, Gigi soon began her modeling career in earnest with several advertising campaigns, including one for Crest in Canada. Next, she moved to Los Angeles and tried to start an acting career. After that, she starred in a number of films including I Hate Myselfie, Better Than Sex, The Campus, and several others.

The life of Gigi Gorgeous has not been without its twists and dramas. After she first came out as a gay man and then decided to be a woman, the YouTuber later came out as a lesbian. Her girlfriend is Nats Getty.
