Lauren Southern (born 16 June 1995) is a Canadian journalist, documentary filmmaker and political commentator.
In 2015, Southern ran as a Libertarian Party candidate in the Canadian federal election. She has left the party and has since been critical of libertarianism.
Between 2015 and 2017 Southern contributed to The Rebel Media, a right wing Canadian online political and social commentary media platform owned by Ezra Levant.
In March 2016, she had a bottle of urine poured over her head by a Far-Left demonstrator while talking at an event in Vancouver, for stating that only two genders, male and female, exist.
In 2018, Southern was denied entry to the UK. The reason shall have been because she has criticized Islam. She was questioned by the border police for several hours and described the situation as bizarre.
She now lives in Australia with her husband and their child. Southern was removed from attending/speaking to the Conservative Political Action Conference due to be held in Sydney on 4 November 2020 after pressure from Australian Jewish Association President David Adler.
