Join the California LGBT Arts Alliance for a free public screening of "Raising Zoey" in Coachella Valley
Featuring a light reception + panel discussion on family acceptance within the Latinx community with Zoey Luna, her mother, Ofelia Barba and the director of the documentary, Dante Alencastre.
13 year-old trans activist Zoey Luna wants nothing more than to simply go to school, learn, 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.
Saturday, February 9, 2019 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Presentando un recepción + panel de debate sobre la aceptación de la familia dentro de la comunidad Latinx con Zoey Luna, su madre, Ofelia Barba y el director del documental, Dante Alencastre.
La activista transgenero de 13 años Zoey Luna no quiere nada más que ir a la escuela, aprender, divertirse con sus amigas en Downey, California. Desafortunadamente, la ignorancia y la intolerancia no siempre han hecho que esto sea fácil. Con la ayuda de su madre Ofelia, su hermana mayor Leticia y la ACLU, Zoey luchó contra las autoridades escolares por su derecho a identificarse en la escuela. Incluso frente a la intimidación y las interminables burlas de los funcionarios de la escuela y los estudiantes, Zoey continúa viviendo su vida como tal y cuenta su historia con la esperanza de ayudar a otros a vivir sus vidas autenticamente.
