Join our friends and neighbors from the LGBT Center OC for a FREE screening of director Dante Alencastre’s powerful and inspiring documentary Raising Zoey at The Frida Cinema! Screening will be followed by a Q&A with Alencastre, as well as the film’s subject, Zoey Luna, and her mother!
13 year-old trans activist Zoey Luna wants nothing more than to simply go to school, learn, and have fun with her friends in Downey, CA. Unfortunately, ignorance and intolerance have not always made this easy. With the help of her mother Ofelia, her older sister Leticia, and the ACLU, Zoey fought school officials for her right to self-identify in school. Even in the face of bullying and endless teasing from both school officials and students, Zoey determinedly continues to live her life as she is, and tells her story in the hopes of helping others persevere in living their authentic lives.
A Reception will follow after screening and Q&A at The LGBT Center on 4th, located directly above The Frida!
FREE Screening! No need to RSVP – Seating will be first-come, first-served!
