Gigi Gorgeous wants everyone to know that it doesn’t take much to celebrate Transgender Awareness Week.
The model and internet personality, who is the subject of the documentary “This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous,” told TheWrap that the one-week celebration is all about increasing the community’s visibility. This year, Transgender Week spans Nov. 14 through Nov. 20.
“I think it’s a lot simpler than people think it is,” Gorgeous said. “Transgender Awareness Week is literally what it says: It’s to bring awareness to the transgender community. You don’t need to be transgender, your best friend doesn’t need to be transgender.”
“You need to know of a transgender person, and you need to recognize their work,” she added.
