What Makes Laura Lux So Special
Laura Lux is a down-to-earth person and loves to stay connected with her fans on the social media. She regularly replies to fan comments, answers questions, and often takes ideas from her fans. She has been very vocal about various causes she felt strongly for, from politics to sexual abuse. Laura, along with her best friend Emily Sears, made it to the news headlines in early 2016 after they took on men who sent them unsolicited images on Instagram. Describing it as a form of online harassment, they started to expose such people by revealing their behavior to their girlfriends. The news soon made it to the Huffington Post and went viral within a short period of time. While talking about the incident, she mentioned that despite the fact that she has received hateful comments from a section of people for her lifestyle, a number of young women lauded her for her efforts at handling an otherwise overlooked real problem that many women face regularly. She eventually inspired a bunch of women, including her friend, to take action against such behavior.
While she is famous for her social media presence, modeling and DJ work, very few people know that she is an avid gamer and is dabbling in the video game streaming industry. In November 2016, she launched her Twitch.tv account and started streaming live gameplay of popular video games. She generally plays first-person shooter games, survival horror and RPG games.
Laura Lux, who was saddened by the death of Harambe, the gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo that was killed after a mishap, often shared memes about the incident on social media. After being taunted by a friend, she told her followers that if her tweet gets shared 2,000 times, she will get a tattoo saying "RIP Harambe". She has a number of tattoos all over her body, and was certain that her growing fan base would add the new tattoo to the list soon. While she thinks it is a stupid tattoo, she doesn't regret it as she doesn't think everything in life has to be serious.
She supports LGBT community as she has lots of gay friends and takes part in parades and gay club events. She often shares her involvements with other people on social media. She loves to travel, and went on a months-long world tour with Mia Vassallo in 2015, travelling to many cities in Europe, America and South-East Asia. She documented her trip to different places on her Instagram account "luxvader", which was originally named "luxandmia". She is close friends with a woman named Apphia, who goes by the Instagram handle "phiphibb".
