This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous

Invited

Gregory Lazzarato is many things—a national diving star, an animated performer, and a lover of makeup. Early on his “Gregory Gorgeous” YouTube tutorials garner a large following. Gregory unabashedly discusses coming out as a gay male and maintaining self-worth in the face of bullies, and his openness fosters a wide network of supporters. In home videos and interviews with family members, Gregory’s mother emerges as a loving and strong role model for him and his family. Her death sparks another confession—Gregory is transgender. From here, Gigi Gorgeous endearingly continues her YouTube channel, mixed with humorous and hard moments with her family as they navigate this path by her side. Filmmaker Barbara Kopple captures Gigi’s transition, undying support from her family, and remarkable interactions with her loyal fans, while new opportunities continue to ignite Gigi’s passion for makeup. Throughout it all, Gigi emanates self-awareness, forgiveness, and excitement for life, illustrating what a truly phenomenal person she is.  KR
