Gigi Gorgeous Detained in Dubai Airport for Being Transgender

Gigi Gorgeous has revealed, via Instagram, how she was detained by airport personnel for several hours at Dubai Airport.

As well as being a model, Gigi is well known in the Youtube scene for her frank documentation of her transition. She posted on Instagram about how the ordeal was “one of the scariest moments of my entire life.”

She continued:”After being detained and held at the Dubai airport for over 5 hours, this was the moment my baby came to rescue me. Yesterday was one of the scariest moments of my entire life and I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone. How you can be denied entry somewhere just because of who you are is seriously disgusting and also very scary. This further proves the need for CHANGE.”

Allegedly, a Dubai immigration officer told the model, “I was told you are transgender. You cannot come into the country.”  In Dubai, the “imitation of women by men” is illegal.

It seems the issue was eventually resolved, as Gigi said she was safe and sound and happy” and on her way to “somewhere much more accepting”.
