Gigi Gorgeous was detained by immigration officers at Dubai International Airport and was told she could not come into the country because she is transgender. GiGi just released this statement via her Facebook page:
“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. I am now on my way to somewhere much more accepting. Safe and sound and happy. I love you guys!”
Although this is clearly a horrible situation, we are happy to hear that Gigi is safe now.
Side note: How incredibly sweet that her girlfriend Nats Getty flew all the way to Dubai to rescue her! We are loving this new couple already! (check out the adorable photo below!)
