'Mama Gloria' celebrates a Black transgender elder's resilience and joy.
Gloria Allen hasn't just lived a full life as an out transgender woman. She's helping younger generations of trans people do the same.
In the new documentary feature "Mama Gloria," Allen, a 75-year-old Black trans woman in Chicago, testifies to the strength and perseverance of a community caught at the intersection of race- and gender-based oppression. Her narrative is one of surviving with grace and dignity, and a model of possibility for trans people when they are loved and affirmed by their families.
Screening available during the week of Trans Day of Visibility - March 28 through April 3. Q+A session via Zoom with Gloria and filmmaker Luchina Fisher takes place on Saturday, April 3.
