Model and internet celebrity Gigi Gorgeous started a vlog at the age of 14, when she was still Gregory Lazzarato. In her transition from Gregory to Gigi, the camera is her therapist and YouTube is her diary. Thanks to her candor and good makeup tips, by the age of 18 she's making $16,000 a month. She likes to boost people’s confidence by showing them how it's possible to be yourself. But it soon turns out that life in front of the camera is very different from what goes on behind it. The footage of her father and brothers in particular reveals what Gigi's gender transition has involved for them. And while Gigi has become a huge star who's constantly encouraging others to be themselves, her 1.7 million followers mean that the lure of commerce is never far away. Less bare flesh and more designers please, her two managers tell her.
