Gigi Gorgeous opens up in an interview with Out about the new eras she’s entering in 2024.

Model, TV host, content creator, social media influencer, and trans trailblazer Gigi Gorgeous has always been a high-profile LGBTQ+ celebrity who creates opportunities for herself. Gorgeous still has that same energy even as of 2024, taking her life and career to the next level and seizing opportunities as they come along.

During an interview with Out, Gorgeous describes her decision to join OnlyFans, shares details about her red-carpet hosting gigs at the 2024 Grammy Awards and People’s Choice Awards, reflects on The T Guide book cowritten with Gottmik (a.k.a. Kade Gottlieb) a year after its release, and walks us through the lifestyle changes she had to make during her baby journey with husband Nats Getty.

Out: We've been seeing you everywhere this award season, from the Grammys to the People's Choice Awards! How's 2024 going so far?

Gigi Gorgeous: Oh my god, so fun! I feel like I'm entering my host era. I joined GLAAD for the first time ever at the Grammys. I was asked to co-host with Anthony Ramos. So many stars! It's exactly what you think it would be… just so iconic. The 2024 Grammys red carpet was [over] four hours [long]. It was also raining down, like pouring, so all the celebs were coming in under the tent, fresh out of the rain… but with their glam and everything still looking amazing. It was a very, very amazing experience. I can't wait to post other things.

I did hear that it was a rainy day in Los Angeles, which means that it was absolute chaos!

Oh, yes. It was pouring!

You've recently launched an OnlyFans account, and it's my understanding that you were inspired by friends and other creators to join. Who were some of those people that inspired you to join the platform?

I actually just did the Trisha Paytas podcast, Just Trish, and I told her how she was one of the people who… subconsciously, I guess… inspired me to do it. I think she joined a couple of years ago, and I just thought it was so cool and liberating to show your body. To make money off of how hot you are. I've entered a fitness era where I've never felt better about my body and my self-confidence and just all of that. So I was like, 'Why not?' So when OnlyFans approached me, I was like, 'Let's do this damn thing.'

But hold up, Gigi. You've had a non-fitness era? You've always looked stunning and fit!

So, from 8 to 16 years old, I was a diver and I was on my way to the Olympics. I was very fit back then. But from then on, I never really worked out or did anything. I guess my metabolism just carried on, which was very nice. But recently, like a year and a half or so, I've been working out every single day. I've never felt better.

I had to make a lot of lifestyle changes for my fertility journey with me and my husband. And then I just thought, 'What better time than right now to do OnlyFans?' Like, I want to show my body. I work hard for it, and it's empowering.

What can fans expect from the content that you're sharing on OnlyFans?

All the content on my OnlyFans is exclusive, so you're not going to see anything anywhere else. Obviously, there's some sexy stuff, there's some behind-the-scenes stuff. It's all very fun. And honestly, I'm getting to know the platform. I've only been on for a couple of months now, but it's been really fun.

I mean, I've been on YouTube for over a decade. I've been on Instagram and Facebook and X, and all that stuff, but OnlyFans is a new one. I was apprehensive, but once I got the vibes of it all, it's completely different than any other platform. I'm really enjoying it and having fun. I post on OnlyFans three times a week, and it's been exciting.

Especially in the last few years, we've seen a shift among social media platforms that are putting even more restrictions on content from LGBTQ+ people. Sometimes we're not even saying anything, but just sharing about our existence will spark an entire political debate. It's good to hear that a platform is allowing you to post more uncensored stuff.

The stuff that I post is definitely more risqué and sexy. Like I said, I've been working on my body, so I want to show it off. But I think the stigma of [having an] OnlyFans has already dropped. I think a lot of people thought that it was sex worker-driven, like just nudity and explicit, XXX, 18+ stuff all the time. But a lot of the pages that I'm being recommended have cooking tips, or fitness posts, or self-help content. One of my good friends, Whitney Cummings, did one of her comedy specials on there. So I felt like it was the perfect time for me to join.

For us in the LGBTQ+ community, we have to keep creating spaces and opportunities for ourselves. I think you are a master of doing that. You're always creating new paths and creative endeavors for yourself. The past few years have been even harder for our community, particularly for trans people. What would you say to trans people who are still finding themselves in this complicated world?

Oh, I would just tell them to take it easy on themselves. I know when I was first starting out transitioning… even, honestly, up until now… some days I'm very, very insecure. Very down on myself, too hard on myself. I want to let other people know that they are enough. Take it easy on yourself. It's not that deep. You are enough.

With social media, we keep comparing ourselves. There's a lot of comparing going on because you're just seeing the highlights of everyone's lives. I think it's really important to reel it back and be like, 'Everyone's posting their best stuff, but you are one of one. There's no one like you. Your uniqueness makes you very special in your own way.'

That's also what I kind of wanted to share with my OnlyFans launch. Like, I'm just sharing my body. I'm not trying to have anybody compare themselves to me or anything like that. I literally just want to share what I have and hope that I inspire other people to live free and within their true authentic selves and within their own bodies. That's what I've always been about. Just trying to inspire and have fun with every situation. Sometimes there's a lot of pressure on social media, but it should be fun. Let's keep it fun.

Speaking of sharing knowledge and giving great advice, I have this lovely book here, The T Guide, which you co-wrote with Gottmik (a.k.a. Kade Gottlieb). It's a great book, and it's been almost a year now since it came out. Have you gotten any surprising responses from fans who read it?

Oh, so many! Kade's parents wrote in the book. My dad and his new wife wrote in the book as well. And I've received a lot of beautiful messages, especially from those chapters, just being like, 'Wow, look at the journey that your families have both had with your transitions,' which is really important for people to see.

Another topic that we touch closely on is 'chosen family,' which we all know what it is… I mean, you're at Out magazine [laughs]. But yeah, we choose our family. None of my [blood relatives] are where I live, they're all back in Canada. Same with Kade, his family is in other places. So that was a really important thing that we wanted to touch on. It's so powerful to have people who align with your values, your morals, and your gender identities. It is so meaningful to us when we do [find that chosen family]. But also, there shouldn't be too much pressure or stress to get there. When it happens, it happens, and it just feels really good.

How are the fans reacting now that you're on this fitness journey and sharing content on OnlyFans?

It's been really positive. A few people in my life were like, 'Oh my god. Why are you doing OnlyFans?' I was like, 'Because they approached me and it just seemed right. It seemed really, really gorge.' And it has, indeed, been really nice. I've gotten a lot of support, too. A lot of girls are like, 'Oh my god, I'm on OnlyFans too, and now you're like my sister on the platform.' We all communicate on there, we're all DM-ing. It was shockingly surprising how supportive of a platform it happens to be. It's one of the most positive platforms [I've been in]. I never really get any hate on there.

I know YouTube and other places are filled with judgment. Like, Reddit and all that stuff. But OnlyFans is pretty positive. People are there for you because they want to see you and they want to see you succeed. They want to see you look beautiful and strive and be successful. And it's true. I had already heard that, but having experienced it for the past couple months, I can now say that it is true.

I think you and I are from the same generation of posting content on YouTube and seeing those comment sections. That was wild. It was truly the Wild, Wild West of the internet. I'm happy to hear about these positive experiences you're having on a new platform.

And I feel like, you know what? It's so much more dense now, all the social media networks. There's a lot more love, but there's also a lot more hate. But on OnlyFans, people are there just for you, which is very special and unique.

You always have so many things going on. I'm always very excited to follow your trajectory. So, what's next for Gigi Gorgeous in 2024?

Right now, me and my husband have six embryos. We're really excited about that because we worked very hard on our baby journey. It's taken a lot of lifestyle changes. I wasn't able to create any of my own DNA, so then I changed everything around lifestyle over the years, and now we are here with six embryos. There's no baby announcement yet, but we are on the path to that, which is exciting.

Hosting the Grammys red carpet was also life-changing for me. I never thought that I would do that, but I really enjoyed it. I went into it thinking like, 'Oh, maybe this is going to just be a one-off thing,' but I just had so much fun. Hopefully, there's more hosting stuff for me coming in the future. There's always a lot going on, but I can't talk about everything. I know that's a very annoying thing to say [laughs], but it's just the top of the year. 2024 is going to be major.
