Gregory Gorgeous, 20, has become an Internet sensation for his beauty tips and gossipy reality series. But even his own show struggles to address his gender-bending style.
What’s not to like about a man who calls himself Gregory Gorgeous?
The androgynous 20-year-old Canadian, who really is quite pretty, has racked up 47 million YouTube views and 345,000 followers with kitschy makeup and fashion tutorials, product reviews, and stream-of-consciousness rants. For the past year, he’s been the star of The Avenue, a gossipy YouTube-distributed reality show in which a group of young fashion upstarts party, bicker, and reconcile with the predictable and soothing undulations of a generation reared on The Hills. Picture Whitney Port in Toronto, with a smaller budget and a looser grasp on reality. Oh, and the protagonist in the sequin dress is actually a boy.
