In the latest issue of Us Weekly, the 31-year-old author of The T Guide exclusively reveals her plans for Pride celebrations, which include jetting off to the hottest spots and taking part in various Pride activations.
Ever since publicly coming out as transgender in December 2013, the Canadian native has been a dedicated advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community. She fondly reminisces about her coming out journey, stating, “I came out as gay before I transitioned. I came out as transgender and then I came out as gay again.” These pivotal moments hold a special place in her heart and have shaped her perspective on identity and self-discovery.
For Gigi, Pride celebrations hold a significant meaning. Her favorite Pride memory was attending her first Pride event in Toronto, where she experienced a profound sense of acceptance and community. The magic of that moment remains etched in her memory.
Gigi has recently co-written The T Guide with Gottmik, an alum of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The book, framed as a conversation, sheds light on their respective transitions and unique journeys.
