Riding on the wings of uncountable controversies, Lauren Southern – Canadian libertarian and conservative activist, has gained unprecedented popularity as a far-right political activist. Asides her activism, she is equally a social media personality, YouTuber, documentary movie director, as well as a writer who is mostly described as alt-right which she has of course denied.
Southern participated in the Canadian federal elections as a candidate of the Libertarian Party. She was also part of The Rebel Media until March 2017 but presently functions as an independent journalist.
Early Life and Career Beginnings
Born under the zodiac sign of the heavenly twins Gemini, Lauren Southern was named Lauren Cherie Southern at birth. She was born in Surrey, British Columbia Canada on the 16th of June 1995 but she is a current resident of Toronto. While not much is known about her formative years, reports reveal that she is of Danish ancestry as her dad’s family were Denmark immigrants to Canada during the Second World War.
Although her other personal details remain elusive, it has been revealed that she was at the University of Fraser Valley where she spent a couple of years in the Political Science department but failed to graduate. According to Lauren, what’s the essence of wasting money in the name of acquiring knowledge that she could well obtain without help?
Lauren Southern embraced political activism early in life and went on to join the Canadian federal elections of 2015, representing the Libertarian party for Langley-Aldergrove district. While Lauren was temporarily removed by the party, the support of The Rebel Media and Breitbart saw to her restoration. However, it would appear that having the support of The Rebel Media was no guarantee for a win as Lauren finished last at the polls.
Her work with The Rebel Media came to her rescue as she started gaining massive popularity through her activities there which were responsible for staring up several controversies. A typical example was when she was reporting at the Vancouver Slutwalk with a sign reading “There is no Rape Culture in the West” which got torn in the process. 2016 saw her engaging with LGBTO protesters around Vancouver where she got a urine bath from one of the protesters.
Lauren Southern appeared not to be deterred in her mission as she continued to leave a trail of controversies in her wake, pointing criticisms at Facebook for the ban of many conservative commentators which informed her suspension from the site.
As a writer, her writing credit is a self-published book called “Barbarians: How Baby Boomers, Immigrants, and Islam Screwed My Generation”. She lasted until 2017 with The Rebel Media and came up with the idea of working independently as a journalist and in no time, gained access to the press briefings of the White House.
She was on the list of the scheduled speakers at a Berkley staged patriots day Rally which was stopped as the proposed rally burst into a riot between pro-Trump demonstrators and anti-Trump protestors.
Sister, Boyfriend & Husband
Though she is good in keeping her personal details away from the public, it is common knowledge that she actually has a sister who is older than her by a few years, but her identity has not been revealed to the public.
It would really come as a big surprise if someone so controversial would actually last long in a relationship. It has been noticed that she likes to keep her private affairs secret and confidential but word on the street said that she has had relationships with two guys in the past but none of them lasted long. Lauren Southern was dropped by the first guy upon discovering her reputation and the second guy saw her as a crazy girl and thus, called it quits with her.
On her own part, Lauren is not remotely interested in getting married right now, according to her, people expect her to go into marriage and have six kids but she disagrees with them.
How Tall is She?
While there is no credible information on the details of her other body measurements, she stands at a height of 5 feet 5 inches. Additionally, Lauren Southern is a natural blonde with brown eyes.
