Event Details

  • Mama Gloria is a feature documentary about Gloria Allen, a trailblazing 74-year-old Black transgender activist who started a charm school for homeless trans youth and is now aging with joy and grace. It is the story of a mother’s love -- the love that Gloria’s mother had for her and the love that Gloria has for her chosen children. And it is fueled by the love that filmmaker Luchina Fisher has for her teenage transgender daughter, Gia.
  • At a time when Black transgender women face escalating violence and make up the majority of transgender people murdered each year, Gloria’s story is an inspiring portrait of aging seldom seen.
  • All proceeds for this fundraiser go to Safe Schools Desert Cities. Your donation will be used in the general fund for program expenses and annual events, such as Pride Prom, Rainbow Youth Summit, and the Youth Zone @ Palm Springs Pride.
  • Luchina Fisher and Mama Gloria will lead a discussion following the film
  • You will receive the link to this online event by May 14 once you purchase your ticket.
