Personal Stories with Gabby Gabriel

Lesmon Connects — Gabby Gabriel

We are thrilled to unveil a new section of our blog dedicated to celebrating the remarkable achievements of successful LGBTQ women who are making a difference in their fields. Through these inspiring interviews, we aim to shine a spotlight on their journeys, challenges, and triumphs, providing our readers with powerful stories of resilience, innovation, and empowerment.

In our inaugural interview, we are honored to feature Gabby Gabriel, a trailblazer in her industry and a true source of inspiration. Gabby’s journey is a testament to the strength, creativity, and determination.

At Lesmon Experience, we believe in the power of representation and the importance of amplifying the voices of LGBTQ women.


Originally from Cleveland, Gabby Gabriel’s extraordinary journey in the global marketing sphere began with a leap of faith when she moved from the US to China in 2012. Today, as the founder of GAB, she leads one of China’s top advertising agencies, renowned for its exceptional service to a global clientele that includes industry giants like Huawei & Budweiser.

She has recently relocated to the US to expand her agency from China-specific to a global digital agency providing services in the US, China and beyond. Her journey from an English teacher to leading a multi-million-dollar business demonstrates her exceptional self-improvement and cultural integration.

Apart from her business prowess, Gabby is also a prominent figure in the LGBTQ community, advocating for inclusivity and community engagement. Her cultural project, Shanghai Love Notes, which blends photography with poetry, has significantly boosted her social media following and led to her feature in the BBC documentary “Reggie in China.”
