Dir. Barbara Kopple | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2017 | 91 min. 

In 2008, Canadian teenager Gregory Lazzarato, a nationally ranked diver, walked away from the pool and created a YouTube channel focusing on makeup tutorials. Unintimidated by bullies, both online and in high school, a fierce and outspoken internet star was born: Gregory Gorgeous. Two-time Academy Award-winning director and MVFF alumna Barbara Kopple (Hot Type: 150 Years of The Nation) delivers a stunning, closely hewn portrait of Gregory as he goes through another life-altering change, revealed in a 2013 video entitled “I Am Transgender.” Enter Gigi Gorgeous, and her empowering message of self-acceptance. 

In conjunction with The Yard’s Pride, Not Prejudice events
