Gigi Gorgeous: 'Find People That Love You For You'

Gigi Gorgeous: 'Find People That Love You For You'

Gigi Gorgeous wears a sparkling silver dress for her feature with Coveteur.

The YouTube star opened up about her documentary This Is Everything, questions she’s tired of answering, being a role model, and more.

On the importance of her documentary: “When I started transitioning, I didn’t know I was going to make the documentary. I had already shared so much of my life, so I didn’t see it as necessary to share more. But once I was done, I was like, ‘Wow, we have a really great story here.’ I know that everybody isn’t as fortunate as I was—one example being my family and how supportive they were—or fortunate in the way that I documented everything. I thought, why not make the movie for me and everyone who needs education on people who are trans and what we go through?”

On if there are questions she’s tired of answering: “No, actually. I honestly keep learning, and the question I get a lot is ‘What advice would you give to people going through a similar situation?’ My answer has changed over the years. Even at the beginning of this year, I definitely don’t think I would have said, ‘Find people that support you and love you for you, and choose your own family.’ That’s something that I’ve learned a lot this year.”
